This embroidery was one of my favorites to do. I like the idea of mixing hard and soft, which is the essence of this embroidery. I feel like women are often associated with being dainty, and told you have to “sound like a lady.” This piece is a response to that.
This is done on white linen which has been hand dyed with black ink. The red of the letters is done with an ombre embroidery floss. I also hand painted the wooden hoop.
This piece has sold, but I plan on making more!
