Portrait of my Grandmother
Embroidery on fabric, glass beads, freshwater pearls, bought frame
35 x 35 cm
In May 2020 my grandmother Taimi turns 87 years old. Among other things she has dedicated all of her life to different kinds of needlework. She has made everything from interior to clothing, and she has even made cross stitch portraits of everyone in the family. She still thinks the latest issue of the embroidery catalogue Atlejé Margaretha is very exciting and loves exploring Pinterest for needlework inspiration. This embroidery is a homage to her made by me.
