Keeping stuff for future use

Towelling fabric
Retrieved from rag bag, print studio Eastbourne College of Art and Technology, 1996

I liked the fabric and thought it was too nice to be used as a rag. I was going to make something out of it, maybe washbags for the children, but I never did. For the last 10 years, it has been in one of my fabric boxes, rescued but not yet recycled.

Postscript: Another almost 4 years later, in the spring of 2010, some bits of the towelling fabric have found their way into my work, are indeed, clothing Sweet Delights, part of my textile cabinet of wonders and my forthcoming PhD thesis and exhibition.
