I love fabric, love sewing. And the creative process feels as natural as breathing – the thinking, the figuring, solving the problem of manifesting the translucent picture in my head. Sometimes the vision makes it to the 3rd dimension, but more often the mental process is enough. Or is there just not enough time to do it all?
