I like to making fun of myself about my previous career fashion design its my previous life's career, because I had not pick up any needles and sewing kit since I switch to paints and brushes in 8 years ago. I must to say I feel very excited when I went to the farmer market to shop some cotton fabric, making some measurement sketches and using my kitchen scissor (instead of fabric scissor) to cutting them into pieces, then hand sewing them together one needle after another. WOW! really! I got lot of memories back suddenly, because its feel like consciously I had sealed these memories tight and stack somewhere deep in my brain, all the sudden I remember how I used to make every things I wanted by myself, I mean clothes of course. And what happened now? 🙄
Anyway, this article is not about memorized my youth, I just want to write down the joyful times I spend while I sewing this Japanese curtain for our new home. I realized when I doing so, I am little by little turning this house become ours. Just think of this, already bring me a lot of happiness and satisfactions. Its doesn't matter what my neighbors would think, I am simply doing things I like, completely loyal to my heart, and I believe our new house would also likes to wear some different accessories through the new owner.
Its took me two afternoons to finished this handmade curtain, and I feel so incredibly happy when I hanging it up to the back door window. I knew this wooden house would perfectly match with this unbleached cotton fabric, and creating the semi Japanese layback garden vibes. When I sit there sipping my wine, and wind blowing gently lifting the curtain, cypress branches shadow reflecting on the long bench, I really feeling so peaceful in that moment, Its feel like I was in Japan, but no.
You know? If there is anything to give the final touch for my holly Japanese layback patio must be a crystal clear hand made wind chime. Just imaging with me, you sitting there, and you heard the sound of wind playing ..Tin~Tin ~Tin.🥰
