BEHOLD!

The present maker, as it is known around our house.

"She began cutting and we stopped talking, both of us listening, I think, to the sound of the scissors. For those of us enamored of the world of textiles, this sound is a little symphony. It conjures an image of a head bent over a machine, the feel of fabric slipping through fingers, a small light focused on a field of intimate labor."

"The Art of Mending" by Elizabeth Berg
