I've just completed two miniature works of art. They will be mounted in a compositors box - a storage device used by printers in the days when individual letters were assembled to create a book or newspaper. They will be joined by 90 more little pieces which have been created by the members of Skipton Embroiderers' Guild for their XL exhibition later this year.
It seemed fitting to use some of the devore fabric that I printed a couple of weeks ago which was based on the decoration found in the tiled hall at Leeds Art Gallery. I layered the fabric over printed text which describes the old English origin of the word to read. I then stitched the words reading room over the 3 individual squares - each one measures 1"x2".
My other miniature masterpiece is a slightly larger version of the snowdrop brooch that I made in March.
