Needlework is very relaxing and satisfying for me–tying things together, fixing things up. There is a high degree of control and plenty of accidental effects. The colours are ready-made and vibrant, and the textures are subtle and varied with microscopic detail. It is like painting with needle and thread. This hand-made hand-bag is thumbing its nose at the sewing machine!
The bag was always meant to adorn the book case on which it hangs–adding some decoration, colour, and softness.
