Continuing with my fondness for old family photographs, I wanted to quickly stitch up something small — this is about 4 inches on each side (a little longer on the horizontal), based on one of my favorite photos.
There is a lot of nuance in the glances and the small details that has gotten lost in my simple lines, but I still quite like it. This photo is of my great-grandmother Anna and her two brothers: Mike in the center and Pete on the left. There’s another sister, Catherine who isn’t pictured (perhaps she’s taking it?). Evidently, I have a particular soft spot for photos of my great-grandmother. I do though, really love the smaller things that get glossed over in my stitched version, and am half-considering doing it larger.
(Also, can you imagine wearing tights to the beach?!)
