Stitched History

By the time I get the kimono silks I usually work with, they often have the original stitches remaining. This is history to me, the shadow of a seamstress who worked the fabric before me. I like to leave it in place, to show that the textile had a previous life.

This might become a rag basket. So far I haven't the heart to tear it into strips. I'm too sentimental.
