I thought I’d share photos of a few smaller pieces I’m working on. The first is a collection of quotes stitched on Aida scraps. I’m not quite sure what I’m going to do with them yet, but they remind me a bit of fortune cookie slips. Maybe I’ll stick them between subway seat cushions or in library books for other people to find.
At the top is a quote my aunt stitched on a sampler she made for our family: “With fingers so nimble, she plied her needle and thimble.” Second is a piece of medieval poetry featured in A Discovery of Witches: “I saw her coming from the forest. Huntress of myself, beloved Diana.” And finally, the beginnings of an Anthony Trollope quote: “There is no happiness in love, except at the end of an English novel.”
Another piece based on a Kate Beaton comic:
