Finished Embroidery – We Daydream Alone

I finished this today. Need a better picture of it, but it is quite gloomy here now, alas. Have to wait til tomorrow.

‘We Daydream Alone’, embroidery, 2013

Yes, the words are InMe lyrics…(I love them oh-so-much)… I wouldn’t say they were stolen. What’s that silly arty word I Iearnt once-upon-a-time…? REAPPROPRIATE. I have reappropriated beautiful, inspirational words. And there is nothing wrong with that. I think they’re rather bloody good words to want to have around.

(Oh and in case you’re interested,  it’s free hand embroidery (i.e. I made it up as I went along) done with red cotton, on a lovely delicate tiny doily I found in an antiques shop on one of my jaunts to Rochester.)
