Greatest Granddad

I'm sorry, I didn't work on my DJ this week. I was just to tired to do DJ also.
But instead I want you to meet my granddad.

My granddad is a real artist. Now in his old days he even give lessons to other people. He don't have his own atelier anymore. He lives alone the couple years and nobody is nagging about him making a mess so he was turning his entire(!) house into his atelier! I love to be with him in his house, or should I say atelier? He has mayor problems with his lungs most of the time but he's still going on. My granddad is the greatest!

This is one of his paintings, or actually this is only a study of a painting.

As promised

As promised here I show you the price I won.
Thanks a lot for all the people who vote for me. Thanks also for quilting gallery and also a big thanks for Around The Block Quilters Shop.

Great fabrics!!

Reusing Vinyl Records into a Bowl

Preheat your oven at 190 celcius of 330 Fahrenheit.
Place the vinyl record in the middle of your oven.
Don't let it melt. It most be hot but not so hot that the vinyl melt.
When its so hot that the vinyl is very soft and shapeble take it out of the oven. I don't use oven mitts but if you don't want to burn your hands please use them.

Place the vinyl record on a up side down bowl. Shape the record, you can do that a s long as the record is hot enough. Not ready and the vinyl record is to cold to shape? Put it back in the oven for about 30 to 60 seconds than you can reshape it easely. Made a mistake? Just put it back in the oven for a while, and then reshape again. :) 
You can use this bowl for serving potatoe chips of candy or fruits.
Ofcourse I use mine for fabrics. :)
