lost and found
This little vintage baby collar was one of a number of treasures I came across lately. I knew it would become something, but I didn't know quite what at first.....It's plain but it has been lovingly hand stitched, maybe by another mother from another time....so I stained it's perfect whiteness and added this mother's stitches to it......
Becoming a mother was something I longed for for such a long time...it feels like coming home at times and sometimes it just feels surreal, that it has actually happened. It can feel like the most natural thing in the world, and sometimes totally bewildering. At times I feel like I have lost myself, caring so completely for another person. Stitching is my way of finding myself again.
