Blood

blood

Sang My Chemical Romance: ‘Blood, blood, gallons of the stuff, I gave you all that you can drink and it’ll never be enough…’

This latest embroidery was conceived as part of a page of doodles visually portraying words as their meanings suggest. Therefore ‘blood’ had to be liquid, fluid and curvaceous. The varying heights of shiny thread over the padding underneath, in the right light, further help to enhance the viscous quality of the word.

Felt padding couched over with shiny red metallic thread following the contours of each letter / segment. Stitched area 9.5cm x 6.5cm.
