The kitchen sink and a piece of wallpaper




















This is also a two-part Moly with a fabric part and a paper part.


I was inspired of the title of Carinas drawing in her moly and had the chance to do an embroidery I´ve been thinking of for a long time. As a mother of three children i spend a lot of time in the kitchen and there I see new still lifespass on the kitchen sink every day.

In the drawing I started with a piece of an old wallpaper from my grandmothers house. It reminded me of the crocheted wallpaper Carina is showing in her blogg, so it is a kind of homage to that one.

Then the drawing and the emroidery have influenced each other...
