some old stuff

















i think it is quite amazing how good the quality of these vintage threads is.
these latest ones i got are covered with dust
yet
they are as smooth as silk,
strong yet soft.



unlike the ones we get nowadays...
there are many colors to choose from,
but i often find them too delicate as they tend to break easily
and
they tend to tangle easily.



sometimes i think
the more developed and advanced we are,
the less heart we put into making things
and
that quantity seems to supersede quality...
