Sewing sounds doing something crafty but it is actually combining materials with math, creativity and emotions. I’ve learned it from my mother, our works are interwoven with invisible threads and fabrics.

As it is in the life at the beginning of the sewing this 10x10 m blanket, it was easy to understand which piece will connect with which other piece or towel but the more pieces come together the more difficult it gets as if it is a piece of chessboard that requires calculation, visualization and creativity to stitch towels together. The size of chaos and volume of emotions grow with the fabric. So does the life.
