.... it's only 3 days late but I've finished at last.
I've been feeling a bit down the past few weeks so I've not really done much. I was going to do a painting for January's Concept but it has taken me all my time just to get up in a morning so that idea has come to nothing BUT I hope to come back to it at some point during this year, perhaps when there are more daylight hours in a day and I'll feel more like painting.
Anyway I ended up doing a doodle embroidery based on the colours scheme. I knew the colours reminded me of something and it wasn't until I read a post on Island Threads that it came to me 'Suffragettes'.
I used my new graphics tablet to doodle a design and came up with this.
Before I started to embroider I printed 'votes for women in white' on the background fabric
as I've done more embroidery the words have been covered up so I don't think you can see them now, still I know they are there.
