The stories have at times become an important part of the pouch. Some pouches take very long to be finished. Not so much because I don’t like to work on them but because I have much other things going on: keeping a vegetable garden for self reliance, collecting natural edibles for food and dyeing fabrics for the needle art projects and I started to knit. Almost always a piece of fabric dictates it’s own coming to be and it needs patience and the mood set to finish what the pouch wants to become.
