I called this work "my pleasure" during the six months or so that I spent on the hand embroidery
Hearts, spirals and crosses were stitched without pre-meditation. I was reading The Mists of Avalon at the time and Morgaine (the heroine) made an embroidery while in a trance.
Embroidery like this can be worked on anywhere and does not require a specialized studio or equipment like other art/craft methods do. This lack probably hampers the acceptance of embroidery in the mainstream art world. My age at the time is one of the secrets hidden within the stitches. Can you find it? Can you find the other secret word?
