Nostalgia – My First Crewel Embroidery (1965)
Fabric, wool tapestry yarn,
Nostalgia – My First Crewel Embroidery (1965) was part of a shipment of household items moved to Calgary and recently sorted. The frame for this piece was outdated and although the original mounting was terrible and left a glue residue in the fabric (the brown spots) I wanted to save it. After removing the backing and soaking it in a mild soap and water for two days, I backed it so that it could ‘fit’ this series. A great way to preserve a bits of memorabila that otherwise would be discarded. Everytime I look at it I am reminded of the Toronto-based summer school and the house mates with whom I have since lost touch.
