好友送的圍巾

手工網友 Winnie 是位編織高手。

有一天看到她的貼讚好,她說也正想送我一件。

這真的高興呀,尤其看上這條是我年少時夢想著但未有能力買的品牌標誌的織款;只是沒記起自己向來對羊毛有敏感,圍巾都多直接貼到頸項的皮膚,就容易會磨出紅疹。

收回來的禮物愛不釋手,怎麼辦?

在工作室裡翻了件絲料,一拼,真是絕配!

AhFoot

Some people like pretty doll, and some not.

Friend’s friend, Papa of Ah-Foot travel around the world with his soft toy names “Ah-Foot”, he originally a character from a story book, 《Over The Rainbow(1)(樣衰阿闊)

Ah-Foot’s PaPa was in press interview, http://the-sun.on.cc/cnt/news/20150611/00410_041.html in 2015.

Ah-Foot kept sending me his postcard every city he visited, a pile received in past years but I never be able to return one; sorry for that.

This day, I called my friend Kay and asked her if she may advise me the size of Ah-Foot then I could make him a set of clothes, for my apology of never feedback.

Kay said, “such a coincidence it can be, Ah-Foot is now as guest in my home his papa left him here for holiday. Let me ask for his papa’s permit and send Ah-Foot to you.”  I need a week would be enough, I said.

The night after meeting with Kay, I called her back and told the set already made.

Twin doll’s kimono on Boo

Friend in Taipei joked, ” remember? you promised me 10 years ago you may make my twin dolls a set of kimono, but seems you have completely forgotten at all.”

I really don’t remember but never mind, for sure the skill in 10 years before won’t be better than now.  I do it right away.

Remotely instructed my friend to get the measurement from her dolls; she cleverly showed me all measurements in photos; but sizes on  pattern still something wrong by visual judgement, I wonder.

Luckily found I have a Boo, seems pretty same size as my friend’s dolls.

 

When The set of two Kimono arrived my friend’s house.  She can’t wait to send me back this photo.

The fabric is given from a friend, Louisa.  I know she loves handmade stuffs and calligraphy.

a hair clip also be used as a corsage; back by lace with handmade edge-burnt roses with pearls and ribbon, always great to attach with a jewclay pendant; I made a little L lettering by marble-mode pin with a sparkling lilac stone.

A piece of sequined satin

A fully sequined satin found in bottom of the wastage carton priced HK$20 at Shum Shui Po few years ago, I bought it and kept in somewhere of workshop until I have totally forgotten it.

Until a day I found a wooden clutch handle, I assumed they should get married.

Fate mists, the sequined satin seems disappeared in workshop no matter how many times I tried to grub out old stuffs in every corners.  They singlely stayed in the workshop for another 2 years.

Finally they becomes together.

 

一片不大不小卻表面釘滿小珠片的色丁 Satin 布,是我幾年前在深水埗一個貨尾箱子底找出來,售價 $20。然後,因為不知可做什麼,我把它完全丟到腦後。

直至一日見到木的小手袋手柄,我猜這張珠繡布應該合用。可惜翻遍工作室,這片珠繡像早已蒸發。

世事也好,緣份也好;總是如此。我決定由得它們各自在工作室裡躲起來。當然最後,終是能在一起的。
