I began this piece for me and it began to show it's own will.
I didn't want it to be a sad story but somehow it even evolved as a kind of thriller...!!!
I think I'm watching too many of them on the telly these days...
The thing is that these two nice Victorian girls were the best friends ever but you know what adolescence can do with these well behaved kids... What happened is that they felt in love with the same man. One of them even married him. The other one, I think it was the one to the left, the ones that don't look like it are mostly the wicked ones..., ended up finishing with the life of the couple and committing suicide. Wait... It cannot end like that. Well then, their spirits woke up in another life where there is no unhappy love or crimes or blood ...and now the three of them are the best of friends. Sadly I think that although they are in a kind of naturist realm it doesn't seem to be much passion there ...
If you marvel at the boobs of the grown up girls I must tell you that they weren't made by me but I got them from Karen Ruane. She does the most stunning embroidery, please visit her blog to see her work! They are made of silk and beautifully embroidered.
I was a month in Alicante and I actually wanted to have a break from work. This is a part of my "break"... I bought fabric, embroidery thread, basic tools in a China shop and spent some days in a cozy coffee shop stitching while I drank coffee. I enjoyed my stay very much, I met friends and saw the festivities for the Fires of St. John.
This piece is going to be bigger and I will keep you informed.
I’m back after a while and would like to give the last explanation about the challenge and raffle.
As I’m leaving for holidays next week, I will do the raffle when I come back, on the 1st. of July.
The participants who published at least 6 photos of their work in Pinterest and/or Facebook can participate and I would be happy if they send me the photos to my private mail so that it’s easy for me to put them on the list.
The finished piece can be whatever you imagine. The use of the small blocks is up to you. I made a book with them but I put also in the Pinterest filesome other ideas at the beginning of the challenge.
