We Trees

I bought this fabric from the Ikea in Chengdu, a giant city in Sichuan where we had our training. We went there to pick up some tea towels and bed linens when we first moved into our apartment here. I saw this fabric and couldn’t resist it’s larger than life, bold colored tree characterization. I wanted to find the perfect place for it in our funny little apartment here, but nothing stood out. Then one day I had the brilliant idea that maybe I actually wanted to WEAR this bold fabric! I found a pattern out of my Japanese sewing book quoi quoi? it was love at first sight!

The name we trees is from some writing I was doing a while ago… thinking about my husband and I… we got married in a beautiful park, and yes on either side of us were two giant trees, obviously friends of the same era, their branches intertwined far above our heads. We saw them as mirrors of the beautiful marriages we get to see… they are a promise of growing old together. (I realize this is much more romantic than this coat… still the thoughts in my head either way!

my thoughts were:

We live and dream as a we
and as we, we are like the two trees
we were first we between.

    I love your jacket! I fell in love with the same fabric and made my shower curtain and bathroom stuff out of it.
