So, here it´s finished (sort of...)
The story: Friday I was talking with a friend about
how increasingly annoying it is riding the subway,
with all that music booming from earplugs, private
matters being shouted into mobile phones, five
papers to support the homeless being boosted
between as much stations, guitars and accordions
(sort of...) played for money etc. - and he, being a
buddhist, said the only way he can stand it these
days is to make it into a practice, not shrinking
away from the nuisance but attempting to plunge
into it deep enough to see that behind it wisdom
and happiness are to be found...
Well, in any case - that was on my mind when I set
about making this, from one piece of silk of the
kind I´ve been dyeing for my October Silk pack to
come - had only used smaller pieces of it so far
and wanted to find out how it is to work with...
It´s rather firm, and unslippery - I like it.
Hope you will, too - the packs will be ready next
week (there´ll be, according to the patterns and
the material, less but bigger pieces as in the
other packs in this one)...
