I made this piece in the months before I found my new house and moved. It fits above the fireplace as if I had made it for the area. Kismet?
I love looking at my dad, it's kind of a classic image, don't you think? These are images I had Spoonflower print and I added the stitching and the words, Mairsy doats and dozey doats and dads are topsy turvy. The one above the couch has patches of grey suiting material.
When I was picking art for the bedroom I thought I didn't want to wake up to people looking at me so I added these painted and beaded pieces, which makes me think about doing some beaded things again. I find the beading very relaxing, plus there is something about hearing the sound of a heavily beaded fabric on your work table.
