My works & vintage fabrics.

Work in progress.
The red thread.
Photography; "The red thread"
Maybe some of you know that i use vintage fabrics in my work.
They are coming out of all the bags with textiles i inhereted from my deceased mum
It comforts me, that i can re-use all those beautiful fabrics and thread.
I know that she would like it...
Also started to use old furniture from our ancestral home that we should empty out.
We can bring it to thriftstores but somehow i inhereted the voice in my head of my father : -)
We had a large workshop behind the house,where he made everything.
From wooden lamps,furniture,leather bags etc.
My house is too small to store everything, that's why i'm thinking to re-style some issues.
