|An "Inchie" is one square inch of art.|
Today's Inchie theme, "Frolic," might have you imagining someone skipping through a field of flowers.
But I pictured someone who had just finished her frolic. Someone with long pink hair, on a windy day, standing in the middle of a field of bachelor's buttons, smiling, with the wind blowing her curls straight up. That's my "frolic." Oh, and she is purple.
She began her life on a one-inch square of 14-count aida cloth. I inserted her DMC memory thread curls--using a long straight pin to wind each strand around making the tiny ringlets.
I quickly embroidered her face and a hint of a blue dress. The tiny piece of aida cloth quickly wanted to unravel, even though I had sewn the edges--I saved it by giving it a piece of purple polka dot material for the backing. My frolic was over!
Here's a another portrait of Frida--I couldn't decide which background to photograph her on for the Every Inchie Monday gallery. (visit http://everyinchiemonday.blogspot.com/)
This is the one I think I will upload. Phew! Next week the theme is "Dance."
