Wrapping by hand

Curious Drawers had me thinking about wrapping and unwrapping family made treasures.The ones that have been crafted for each other with love.

One of the pieces I made was this ‘dust-sheet’ – a fine layer, lightly enveloping and able to protect gently. It was stitched with hands and text.

Free-machine embroidery, hand stitch, pen drawing on cotton organdie and on domestic ‘dust-sheet’. The chair was made by my great grand-father who made them for his children.
