I’m taking a break on my embroideries for my grandmother to work on this – an image from a large “Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep” embroidery pattern I found in a box of books. It’s at least 50 years old, so I was pleasantly surprised when it still ironed on. I’ve been trying to figure out things to put with my rusted material. This one is a long strip that I dyed, and next to the girl I will put part of a conversation I had with an annoying job-applicant at the t-shirt stand.
He asked if I was in graphic design, and I told him about fibre. He asked what it was about, and I used my telephone pin as an example.
“This is the kind of stuff I make.”
“Wow, you must have been really bored.”
That was when I made a note for the manager not to hire that guy.
