another dream come true
|from the rough removable baste to an almost complete kantha-ed cloth, from a stark nearly complete tree to who knows where?|
|i very much like the not-so-complete tree on the back|
|am sewing mainly in the evenings, have a second part-time job in my favourite bookshop de mandarijn, started yesterday..... am very excited.....|
|completely happy, very wet and fast doggy|
Plus anyone who creates a wondrous Christmas tree from creatively stacking books, well then, they certainly belong in a book store. What a fine way to begin this new year. One of the ways that I paid for my college, besides scholarships, was by working in the college bookstore...very special times, especially when I got to get away from the cash register and go and stack books for each department. On my breaks, you could always find me sitting on the floor reading books from the English and journalism departments.
an excellent way to kick off the new year Marti, I like knowing that you (and Julie) worked in a bookstore as well, some of us just love books and everything to do with the printed word
a dream come true Nancy, honestly! I feel very fortunate
the back is special Deanna, for reasons beyond my comprehension; so you're a book lover too! welcome to the 'club'
Dank je wel, Els
thanks Michelle, the kantha is amazing if I say so myself, I'm always a little taken aback once a piece nears completion, accompanied by a sense of satisfaction and gratitude that such simple stitching does produce serene beauty, to be a part of just that.....
And dare I say the b-side tree looks like it is gesturing ... reaching out, running even. In stitch, anything's possible.
