Dark And Light aka A Home For All // 1

July is almost gone and I've been sewing away at this top. While I've enjoyed the sewing process and had fun scavenging my scrap boxes I've also been thinking about what is going on in the world. So much social injustice, so much undeserved luck for some, so much bad luck and much worse for others. And so while sewing and looking at my fabrics I've been thinking of Blacks and Whites, of dark and light, an how we all want to be happy and feel at home. I've been dreaming of a world we'll probably never have and yet we must not give up wanting. These thoughts have been infused in this top while I was trying to combine dark and light fabrics in a way to bring clarity, harmony, intermingling, equilibrium. Yet, visible and invisible barriers remain.

I'll show today some progress shots and very soon the finished top.

"Humans are creatures who spent their lifes trying to convince themselves that their existence is not absurd."
