The Matchbook Diaries

Sunday morning, November 26, Shanghai

We normally go to Mass on Sundays but we were forewarned not to this weekend – heavy crowds and traffic at the Chinese Mass that precedes our English language one.  So I’m home thinking about how much fun it was in Qatar to go treasure hunting in the desert.  When Qatari’s leave their tent camps they often bury the waste in the sand, and I found the most amazing evening gowns there, embellished with lots of huge, heavy rhinestones.  I LOVE stuff like that.  I used a bunch of those edges from one gown to embroider this duster jacket I had made in China that was kind of boring.  Now it isn’t.
