Latest pillow-family addition.  I made this for my dear Sabreen because there is an alley by my house that is called ‘Breen’ and when we walked by it she got  happy and said that was the closest thing she had ever seen to having her name on it -  you know when you are little and there are mini-license plates with kids names and pencils and whatnot?

They never said Sabreen—-so I stitched this up—I mean looking back it should say Sabreen a lot more clearly BUT I couldn’t put California on top because you say the “Queen of England” Not the “England of Queen”  so California can’t go above its queen—-

Aaaaand—she has gone off to Texas and while I cannot understand this- fully support it and am really glad there are airplanes so she can come back home to Berkeley to visit (these are supposed to look like Berkeley street signs btw)

Fuck the miniature man forcing the miniature poor to make miniature license plates with WASP kids names only!

She [Martha] could, however, be highly critical of those whose precision with the needle did not meet her own exacting standards. Although a warm and loving person, she had strong opinions about certain things.”

Everybody: Why do you embroider? That's an odd hobby for a young lady like yourself.
Me: Because I get to repeatedly stab things and call it art without getting arrested.

Lithuanian artist Severija Inčirauskaitė-Kriaunevičienė uses cross-stitch embroidery to adorn metallic objects such as plates, spoons, pot lids, lamps, rusty tin cans, pails and shovels, even automobiles. Some of her pieces feature traditional floral motifs while others are much more unusual and playful - the ashtray appears to contain stubbed out ends of cigarettes. The spoon reflects the mouth of the person about to eat from it.

Visit Severija’s website to check out many more examples of her awesome embroidery.
