use of old fabric & stitching

book stores and library are great places to find
the inspiration.  i was browsing the public library
wanted to find stitching books today.


in her book, she noted 
as you stitches unusual shape of fabrics together
when you think it is good ......becomes normal
when you think it might be odd.....becomes more odd
but in the end, it becomes unique and powerful 
because each small pieces of fabric 
creates characteristic atmosphere
as a whole 


i admire her life philosophy

    1. i admire people who try to conserve what they already have and give it
      a secound chance. i, myself is longing for slow stitching as she said "very
      relaxing meditation like". i like to enjoy the slowness in this activity, don't you.
      have a good week, aina.
