Kntting, Anatomists, and Embroidery
I spoke about the freedom I felt in inventing the physiognomy of the corpse. I am trying to keep that inventive spirit alive throughout the composition. I am exaggerating the smallness of the middle doctor's features, and sort of clustering them together in the middle of his big head.
I am sewing my cadet blue sweater together. I still need to do the three pockets, yuk. And the interfacing that goes around the edges and collar, double yuk. I haven't even started knitting that part yet.
And here is a few more thready bits added to my danse macabre embroidery.
