Home Sweet Home


Home Sweet Home
Originally uploaded by AlwaysInspired
I created this one of a kind home sweet home embroidery for Knickertwist in the IYP swap. She loves vintage sideshow banners. I scoured the net for inspiration and drew up something I was happy with. The tattooed lady, strong man, and two headed skeleton kid make up a wonderful family. I used watercolors to paint it on muslin and then stitched in the details. My father in law made the frame with reclaimed wood from an old abandoned house. It is the perfect touch to finish it off. I'm so happy it has arrived in it's new home and will hang by the door of Knickertwist's home!
