another big crafting project out of my system. what a relief!

it lives on a wall in my crafting/drawing/everything room and i love it.

all materials recycled (good job, aida. and also, you really have loads of unnecessary crap at your home, don’t you? )

the letters are pinned to the board (that has a piece of an old blanket stitched to it) and having premade a bunch of letters already, i can easily change the words whenever i feel like it.

next week i think i’m going to go with the word “jump”. maybe an exclamation mark will go nicely with it

also maybe i should change the embroidery thread on the lighter letters to a darker one, to make the pop up a little more

some of the stuff used in this has a history, like the background fabric rectangle is maybe 40 years old, i dug it up at my parent’s this summer in a far away town of Kazan.

anyhow, i picked this line from a tv show.

it represents an approach for life  that i understand i have no choice but fully embrace ASAP.  well, i embraced it in my romantic relationship alright.  hope i’m not overdoing it.

now, when i see such positive thinking projects all over the blogland, the russian in me awakens and my lips contort involuntarily in a small patronising smile
but! i’ve lived long enough and by this point know better than this. so i’m joining in with mr. woody allen and say: whatever works, people, whatever works!

p.s  today’s middle eastern wabi sabi photo:

israel in all it’s glorious..um.. glory, right?

take care
