In 2004 , well into her nineties, Louise Bourgeois made 'Ode a l'Oublie' ,
( Ode to the Forgotten )
one of the 36 pages
It is a handmade cloth-book , made from bits and scraps of old linen and garments she had collected through a lifetime .
I love fabrics, especially linen, cotton in their purest form but rich velvets are favourite as well .
Well-used fabric holds lots of stories and memories,
I cherish my fabrics ...
