Fun day at the Oakland Museum!

This year again, I had participated in Lunar New Year celebration at the Oakland Museum.
It's been almost 10 years since I first went to this museum for the special events! 
But it's always fun and exciting to meet people there and share my culture with them.
올해도 어김없이 오클랜드 뮤지엄의 설날행사에 다녀왔다.
이제 햇수로 10년이 넘지만 아직도 사람들을 만나고 내문화와 풍습을 알리고 나누는 이 일이너무나 신나고 즐겁다!

Judy's bojagi

This this a commissioned work for Judy.
It took so long because of my family loss last November.
But she was very kindly waiting for me to finish it.
I was thinking of her even though I never met her but as I putting pieces together, I was able to think of her and wished for her happiness and prosperity as old Korean women wished same for their loved ones.
Thank to Judy for me being able to have a joy of making!

쥬디를 위한 보자기가 우여곡절 끝에 드디어 완성되었다.
지난 두달간 한국에 머무르느라 너무도 늦어져서 미안했지만 잘 기다려준 그녀에게 고마운 마음뿐이다. 비록 서로 모르는 사이지만 한땀 한땀이으며 조각이 커질때 그녀의 행복을 빌며 만들었다. 아마 옛날 여인네들이 사랑하는 이들의 행복을 빌며 만들던 마음이 이렇지 않았을까? 상상해본다.
이런 창작의 기쁨을 느낄수 있게 해준 쥬디에게 감사한다!

Missing home

Finally I am going back home soon. There are so many things that I do in here, Korea and more things to do when I am home. I was making this bojagi while I am staying with my mother-in-law.
I missed my own family so much and I decide to name this bojagi 'Missing you'.
I still have to put more pieces to finish but like to share it now.

집으로 돌아갈 날이 다가오고 마음은 급해만 지고 할일은 줄어들지를 않는다. 시댁에 머무는 동안 짬짬이 이어간 이 보자기. 보고싶은 가족을 생각하면서 만든 이보자기는 완성도 되기전에 이름을 얻었다. '그리움' 아직도 완성과는 멀지만 그래도 맛보기로 나누고 싶다.
