striped thread, British Museum image - this reminds me of mums coloured letters painting and I could use words and a message to recreate it in this style.

Junko Oki - Woky Shoten

"A certain love of roughness is involved, behind which lurks a hidden beauty, to which we refer in our peculiar adjectives shibui, wabi and sabi. .. It is this beauty with inner implications that is referred to as shibui. It is not a beauty displayed before the viewer by its creator .. a piece that will lead the viewer to draw beauty out of it for themselves. ~ "The Unknown Craftsman: A Japanese Insight into Beauty", Soetsu Yanagi, Bernard Leach (Mandala of Mending by Junko Oko)

Sun prints! I adore this idea, as you can combine it with embroidery as well bubba! Would love a pillowcase like that >.<
