Blackwork Saturday

I’m on holiday and have to keep my airline baggage to the absolute minimum because cheap fares allow for only carry-on baggage. I brought some embroidery panels that I had made from an iron-on kit and squares of unbleached calico. I decided to embroider everything in black so I only needed to bring two skeins of thread. This is the first time I have attempted anything like this faux blackwork. I’m pretty happy, so far.

Here are the first three panels:

Who am I? I am different things to different people. I am a poet, a visual artist, a sculptor of found objects, and a writer. I am a bookkeeper, an office manager, an administrator and software support consultant, even a short-order cook and barista. I am a parent, a grandparent, a sibling, a cousin and a friend. I am a traveller, a technophile, a philosopher and a student of all things.
