This will probably be the last work I make, which
utilises tiny fragments of reclaimed needlework - I'm
moving to larger pieces of embroidery and lace
and pinning directly to foam-core, rather than tulle,
in an attempt to save time and also
my back, arms and shoulders from repetitive strain.
It is a detail of a Laughing kookaburra, after Anthony Alder, who was
a Queensland taxidermist, painting in oils in the 1890's.
