I am a devoted follower of the blog "It's About Time".
You can link here, or always find it in my blog roll on the right hand side of your screen. This blog (and others) is written by 'Barbara' .
The artist of the work above is Stanley Spencer, English, 1891-1959. This piece is called 'Neighbors, 1936'. This is the tip of the iceberg but you must visit the site to see the very human, and robust work of this artist!

I am preparing a new Power Point show for a couple lectures I will be giving soon. I don't think I have shared these on my blog before so I thought I would now.
Stitched on muslin.
The wrapped chain is still one of my favorite embroidery stitches.
That is the stitch that looks like a twisted cord.
This is stitched on osnaburg fabric, a favorite background for me.
The little red hen. I think she can.
The date on this piece is '01!
It is Elsa's wagon, part carousal, part gypsy wagon.
Embroidery with cotton applique.

These photos my take longer than usual to load but hopefully you will be able to explore and enjoy the details better.
This dapper young bird might be looking for some nightlife.
3 birds, 1 bunny, 2 butterflies, 1 moon and 1 worm.
Can you find them all?
In the upper left hand corner a squirrel is reading before bed. The silvery web is empty for now. Tiny mushrooms are nestled in the grass.
The young owl is responsible for letting the stars loose at night.
A swan and fish swim together in a rock pool derived from 17th century embroideries.
And last but not least, the birdy family reuniting in the evening.
