I have just had the best couple of hours, sitting by the sunny front window and unstitching an old silk kimono.
peacefully starting the transformation of an old garment into a quilt.
Loving the the silk sheen in the changing light as clouds pass by
Heaping up folds of rich silk
Thinking about how to use the different textures and colours
Undoing carefully the careful stitches set by my predecessor in the fragile lining silk
Admiring the stitches before I pull them out
Silk rustles in a quiet room
The stiff and the fluid silks let go of each other
and float to the floor
