This year marks the 150th anniversary of the writings of Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. This much loved book has taken many a child and even adult into the magic land of rabbits, mice, cats and more. What a grand imagination Lewis had. Do you remember pretending stories as a child? Hold on to that curiosity for it will enrich your day to day living.
As part of a piece for the Brighton Embroiders Guild, I was asked to do the centre piece for a show to be held in Ardingly in June this year. After pursuing copyright free photos of Alice, I enjoyed making this piece. It is 20 by 24 inches so took many hours of painting then stitching to complete. I must admit, I had visions of pink mushrooms dancing in my head by the end.
