These remind me of my mum. In ways that I suppose people who knew her will understand. But also - she used to make and stitch and sew little things like this. I wish I could find some photos of things she made. I remember some long limbed fabric rough-stitched gangly people she made once. I want to find some time to make some stitching like this - I think I've been dreaming of this, using my mums fabrics remnants.

This work is by Janet Edmonds. I first saw it over here. I recently bought myself the book Three-Dimensional Embroidery, but have not yet had much time to look through it. Perhaps this weekend....

Sad news in my family this week. A little baby not-yet born, lost.  little tiny. I do not understand the un-fairness of this - there is no understanding. Only a heart-wrenching. And then ... maybe, perhaps a softness, and a being. Though I do not know. My love to all you out there trying for a baby. I know, yet also can only imagine, the emotions.

  1. Bless you. I'm sorry for your sad news. It is heartbreaking, to have succeeded and yet failed all at once. It's been nearly a year and I haven't succeeded yet, but we keep trying. Love, and light, and good luck.

  2. Strange how those little bundles and stitchings ooze such beauty.

    So awful for those who have lost a small one and now have to work out how to bear that loss.
