Six complete critters, three partials, and a whole lotta foliage to go. Dimensions about 54" wide and 36" high, stitched in Paternayan crewel wool for the critters and DMC #5 Perle Coton for the foliage. I started on November 18th, so that is approximately 150 hours of stitching to date.
I'm an artist who has been making stuff for 30 years. I used to spin, knit, weave, quilt, design, write, embroider and garden, and I still do most of these things, but for the last few years I have been focused on stitching images from Canada's first natural history, the Codex Canadensis.
I try to live a life of minimal consumption and maximum creation. More and more, I see how these are connected.
