Shibui

Here I am again, back from LA, back from Nashville, back from Chicago, with my head swimming from all those hours on planes, even if we did crack First Class on the way back. It sounds so petty to complain about hotel bread (foam rubber), eggs (foam rubber) and coffee (brown dishwater), airless rooms with sealed windows, towels and sheets which smell like driers, and a television staring at you from the end of the bed, but it makes it all the better to come home to real food and fresh air and my own things.
Shibui is one of those subtle Japanese concepts, a word for something which didn’t have a word. “Shibui objects have a history which they convey. They speak of understatement, utility (each piece serves an important function), and unobtrusive sophistication.”
Well, I’ll drink to that.

I have been sewing non-stop since my return as the orders have mounted up, and now I need to order another two bolts of fabric. I am so thrilled that other people love these things too.
