to an embroidery thrifted last week. $3 for such beautiful fine work. even the back of it was a masterpiece. i couldn't leave it there so brought it home with thoughts of making it into a cushion cover for michael's mother. she loves the colour blue, birds and is a damn fine stitcher herself so will appreciate the work that has gone into it. working with pieces like this is something i love doing. i love that there is a story woven in with those threads but one that i will never know. i love that i am creating the next piece of the tale.
