    a most glorious lace is growing from the loosened threads stitched beautifully and mindfully…your model is perfectly suited for this wonderful creation.

      (((Kristin))) as the cloth becomes more fragile it is needing thicker threads and wider stitches to hold it all together, learning to loosen up with age

    This is so very swell! Special love for the right shoulder. It all feels like the magical moment when the stars and twinkles are whirling around just before the reveal of transformation…

    love how you fixed his jacket, a friend had his father’s old army jacket and it needed mending, so I took tiny pieces of fabric I had dyed, sewed them into blocks and hand stitched them on the coat. He really liked it. The green and tan fabric matched the jacket. I love repairing old clothes

  11. Rene says:

    Stunning! I love the jacket.
