TIF

Sharon has launched the TIF challenge for February.
Have a look there.
This time, I'm working on the concept. What are you old enough to remember?
This brings me back to the 60'. Some songs that I did not really understand and seemed so mysterious. Images of the Vietnam war on the black and white TV, one in particular. And the obsession of my mother for furniture and domestic devices.
This is a sketch about that, that I intend to embroider in black and white.
Happy TIF to all!

I really like this idea of embroidering a picture. It would never have occurred to me, but I am sure it would be really fun to do. Hmmmm....

Was für eine großartige Idee! Ich erinnere mich an die Zeit gut: "Nierentisch-Zeit" hieß sie zur Erinnerung an kleine Couchtischchen in Nierenform, die sehr verbreitet waren. Und dann gab es dazu die Russischen Eier zu essen und Käseigel mit Weintrauben. Und das ganze machst Du jetzt in schwarz - weiß, das finde ich toll, es paßt zu dieser Zeit.
Viel Spaß beim Realisieren.

Great sketch and what a lot of work ahead of you. Will it be by hand or machine, or both?

Can't wait to see this one and how it turns out!!! I am not so ambitious this month and have barely attempted anything beyond piecing block yet. As always, thanks for coming over for a visit...

This is a great memory. I can recognize that kitchen in my own growing up. Can't wait to see what you do with this.
