I made this card last summer, for the WholePort competition. I find out about them from Ann Martin and wanted to give it a shot. So, WholePort wanted us to make something out of their paper. I received this beautiful, soft origami paper from Hong Kong. I was so excited!
As a child, I was no more then 10, I played a lot with textile ( fabrics ). My mother allowed me to use her new sewing machine. Out of her old dresses from the late sixties, I made a skirts for myself.
My first job was to sew clothes. As a teenager I worked for a lady who was so nice to me all the time.
So those papers reminded me on fabrics and I wanted to "sew" a paper card. A card is not too big, 15.5cm X 7.0cm X 2.0cm.
Something about it reminded me on early morning, well no too early, clock shows it's 10:05 am, but cozy, girlish little room somewhere in London. That's where the title comes from. I wanted to add a small cup, teapot with cookies and an open book. I had so little time to make it so I still find it unfinished. I also wasn't satisfied with my curtains and wanted to make it right but my daughter decided it was hers and took it into her room so I had no authorities any more.
