darker












This one is a large one. Khaki linen combined with black and light yellow lace. I remember thinking, when I was much younger, that this must be the ugliest piece of lace I have. I could not understand why anyone would want to use yellow for anything, it was my least favourite colour (maybe it still is as I cannot wear yellow myself without my skin looking all grey). Then everything clicked when I placed the lace on the khaki linen. It took maybe 15 years to understand this lace, to begin liking it. Now it's right where it's supposed to be.

I think I will have a large shop update early next week. Until then I will continue showing you the Saima books and make books for my other new secret project.

That's why you must keep things and not throw them away. You might like it later. Great combination.

Yes, it's beautiful. I think yellow is the hardest color to like, but I'm warming up to it
