SHANA DE VILLIERS

Working for about a month, connecting the scraps of deeply sentimental fabrics into a patchwork blanket (About 1,6m by 1,2m)
Most of the scraps come from a suitcase of bits and bobs that I have been saving (collecting) for almost 13 years. This is not the end, although the process was a cathartic and private everyday ritual of selecting and attaching pieces that eventually became one blanket of comfort.
