The joy

… of playing without a purpose.

I`ve been quite stressed lately, I have always an insane amount of things in my to do list, and the results of the hard work don´t come back the way they should be. Even if it doesn`t seem so from the outside, trying to make a living out of a creative-artistic-personal-ethical-freelance job is very tough most of the time. Don`t get me wrong, I am fully aware that there are paths much more harder than this one, but that doesn`t ease the concerns.

It`s difficult to flow and enjoy with so much uncertainty, so many wonderings about what you should do to make it work and -mainly- the weigh of “it`s all in your hands” quote (which by the the way, is a common but fake belief).
It`s been a while since I have troubles to trust my work and future, and I lose the sense of what I` ve chosen to do. That`s the truth. And as you will know, this is a fundamental attitude to get things done in a bright way and to be brave enough to make some moves. My catch 22 situation also applies to logistics, but that is a much more boring matter, so I` ll preserve you from it ;)

This said, there`s still hope. I think I am starting to make small steps, to change my mindset to feel the joy in a regular basis, relax and stitch by stitch be confident again. ​
Yesterday I decided to mow the grass of my cat´s pot, it was so beautiful that I collected it in one of my favourite dishes. I bought this wavy jewel in a flea market in a time where I was obsesed to find bathtubs for the ladies, this never served to that purpose, not until now. The bowl of grass was literally asking me to come inside, so I did it the only way I could: get the -first- bathing lady out of her foam bath and give her a grass bath. Lucky her.

Of course she is again taking her regular bath in her white and blue bathtub… You know, grass baths are rare experiencies that don`t last long. If anytime you have the chance, don´t doubt it, leave all behind and get into it.

Sssssssh

A new Lady is born.

_MG_3969

Oraindik ez dut erabaki noiz eta nola aurkeztuko dizuet,
badakit baina zuzenean ikusteko aukera abenduan izango duzuela…

La primera Lady del año llegó casi con la primavera; la segunda, en San Juan.

“Threaded” Godais!

Happy to anounce that three Godai Ladies have been selected to be part of Threaded, an online exhibition curated by Envision Arts.
Fu, Chi and Ku are sharing virtual space with an interesting selection of textile art pieces from many other parts of the glove. I highly recommend to go and have a look, there are many ways to express through fiber.

Me alegra poder deciros que tres de las cinco Godai han sido seleccionadas para formar parte de la muestra de arte textil “Threaded” organizada por Envision Arts.
Aire, tierra y éter están compartiendo espacio virtual con una gran variedad de expresiones táctiles de buena parte del mundo. Os recomiendo una visita… ;)

Bost Godai Ladiak aurkeztu nituen, baina artista bakoitzeko gehienez hiru lan aukeratzen zituzten. Parte hartuko nuela jakinarazi zidatenean kuriosidadeaz jota begiratu nuen zein zen haien hautaketa… Nere bi faboritoak kanpoan, kuriosoa. XD

Berutanews is back

Como lo oyes. He vuelto al boletín, oh yeah!
Y recupero la frecuencia mensual, que si no se me acumulan los temas.
Formalidad en el horizonte ;)

Si estás suscrito debería haberte llegado a la bandeja de correo hace unos días, pero a veces llega a la carpeta de “promociones” o a destinos todavía más crueles. No es mi culpa, es el sistema XD

Las Ladies se están peanizando…
Haientzako “marko” egokiak prestatzen nabil.

I’ve been developing new stands for the Ladies, most of them upholstered. There will be a bunch of them ready so soon. I’m quite excited about it! I love how they look… I feel like I’m giving at the same time a frame and a small piece of land to the Ladies.

Hace mucho tenía pendiente este tema y por fín he dado con la manera de hacer las peanas. A partir de ahora las Ladies tienen un pedacito de suelo.
Pronto estarán también disponibles por separado para Ladies que se independizaron hace tiempo, o para lo que sea menester… Estoy ultimando detalles ;)

Egiten duzun guztia erabilgarria dela behin eta berriro egiaztatzen dut. Base hauek tapizatuak daude, eta ezetz igarri non hartu nuen hau egiteko trebetasuna? Arropa multinazional horietako batean erakusleihoak egiten egin nuen lan urte luze batez, eta hobe tratatua izatea merezi nuela ikasteaz aparte, taulak ximur bakar gabe oihalez estaltzeko teknikak ere eraman nituen etxera. 

New Lady!

Sometimes to keep it simple takes a lot of effort, but when you finally achieve it
the sensation is so beautiful.
You will meet this super red Lady as soon as I have a moment to take her proper pictures, and I will also share with you all the different shapes her dress has been in. ;)

La primera Lady del 2019 llegó finalmente ayer.
Como pasa a veces, la arranqué  con una imagen bastante concreta en mente,
pero después de vueltas y más vueltas ella ha decidido ser otra. ¡Buenas son las pelirrojas!
Ya os la presentaré…

Etorri etorri
