I am presently making an embroidery for my sister and her hubby. It's one which I have long promised to make. I wanted it to reflect all the aspects of their life together. It all seemed so overwhelming so I have just put it off for perhaps the last 4 years...they travel everywhere and have many interests. But after the last Selvedge magazine and reading about Arthur Bispo do Rosario I got all inspired. So I started with this dog in a cup which is the sort of thing which can bring a tear to my sisters eye on a vulnerable day. Then I continued with individual pictures which I will put together in the end joining with braids, ribbons and the like. Not buttons as Charlie has a phobia of them.
I aim to complete this in the next 3 weeks so I can take it to the UK and give it in person!
I was planning on it all being hand embroidered but due to time limitation I dug out the sewing machine...!
