New Piece Of Work

I have started a new needlework project. It's a self portrait of sorts done in caricature.

Here's the first paper draft. I will surround myself with familiar words and symbols. Obviously the syringe is for chemo and not because I'm a drug addict!

Here is the start I already made on fabric. I fused the pieces onto the backing using my own hand dyed fabrics. From now on most of the work will be hand stitching. I really wanted to do something complicated with my hands and thought this would be fun to embellish with buttons and threads and beads. I shall keep you regularly updated on the progress. :0)

Ooooh, I did wonder about the syringe ha ha! I expect it will be great when it's finished but I think you are much prettier :O)

I love it when you embark on these works of art. It's a while since you did one isn't it. I believe my loo picture was the last. This one looks fun and a bit like the Livvie one you did. Why have you made youself look funny though? I agree with Babs that you are much prettier than you portray yourself. Keep us all up to date with progress.XXX

Oh what fun Poo, Please keep this blog updated as your product updates.

I want a copy of this one, I know it will not be items but I can still have a pretend canvas of it. I would love that.

Look, will you people stop knocking my arty rendering of myself? It is symbolic. Symbolic of my fight against the establishment and authoritarionism. I think.
