sewingtools by LouJay

are special for the person that uses them. These are mine.

I like to play. I find joy in small things and moments where the edge between conscious looking and subconscious seeing becomes soft enough for me to be there for a moment.

    I love this. Tools that are used by someone over a long period of time become very special – beautiful idea.

  • Thank you Evelyn, I think it is that aspect of tools that attracts me to them – the relationship they have with the hands that use them, built over time and use.

    Love this image , my beautiful Nana passed down to me her heavy old pin cushion that she brought with her when she immigrated from Holland to Australia and I still use it . Nana taught me to sew an crochet a gift that I treasure an shall pass on to my girls .

  • I am a bit neglectful at passing on those things to my girls -I think I have had a lot on during the last decade when it would have been the key time to do these things with them – breast cancer, moving from city to country, owner building, working…..I hope I’m not too late to teach them! Thank you!

    Oh this is just wonderful love the pin cushion and the knitting needles. Love old knitting needles the metal ones i try and find in charity shops I hate the plastic ones.

  • I agree, I don’t like plastic ones. I don’t knit a lot, but on the rare occasion I do, i find the metal ones slide the stitches better! Thank you Karen!
