I hope you all had a wonderful Earth Day. My family celebrated by spending some time outside in nature at the lake near our house.
This weekend I had planned to travel with the kids to New Orleans and celebrate Mardi Gras with my sister. I was going to regale you with all of the interesting sights that Mardi Gras had to offer. Then I got sick, really sick. I couldn’t eat, and I could barely walk for days. Since Mardi Gras was no longer an option, I stayed home with the kids this weekend, and the sights I’ll be sharing this week will instead what I was able to accomplish this weekend in my reduced capacity, and stuff I’ve done previously, but haven’t shared.
Every year I make my friend, the good doctor, at least one piece of medically inspired embroidery. This year, after my thyroid starting giving me problems, I decided that the thyroid, and it’s immediately adjacent structure, the Larynx, would be my subject matter of choice.
This piece took me over a month, and probably over 1000 French Knots to create, but I think it was worth it. It is one of my favorite embroidered anatomy pieces to date.
