Or so it see(a)ms......

What´s that...?













Looks far more dramatic here than it is - just
experimenting...













... with seams I collected when cutting up old
clothing...













... and some raw silk filling from an old coverlet
I don´t use any more...













So, it´s already almost time to say bye-bye to
April - that one went quick (as most of them do)...

I love the way you can see both beauty and potential in something as mundane as old seams. The used and worn transform into coherent, serene, and lovely works of art in your hands.

I can't say it any better than jenclair - serene is just the right word. And magical.

Thank you... - it does look quite good, considering the little effort it took... - no seam stress here for the seamstress (funny word, if you come to think about it...)
