Hand-Sewn Portraits of Minor Television Celebrities

Feb 3

For valentine’s Day, I’ve added four new backgrounds done in red. There are two other new backgrounds available that are a little less Valentine’s themed, if you’re not in the mood to celebrate.
I just wanted to say a quick thanks to any subscribers of the RSS feed. Last month was Totally Severe’s busiest month ever, due in no small part to the fine folks at CRAFT magazine, who mentioned my embroideries on two occasions.

Don’t forget about Forget Me-Not! The above embroideries will also be for sale at the show. I am curious to find out if a market exists for hand-sewn portraits of minor television celebrities.

Howdy visitors!
I have been busy sewing some new embroideries because I was invited to participate in an embroidery show at Gallery Hanahou in the SOHO district of New York City. They have a show called ‘Forget Me-Not’ and I am sending in three of my embroideries. I live 3,000 miles away from New York, so I won’t get to see my poor little creations on display, but if you just happen to live in or near the area you should definitely visit. The show runs from February 6th through the 27th.

Anyway, I’ve also added two new backgrounds, and a new section of printable silhouettes. I don’t know if anyone will actually use them, but at least they were fun to make. I used public domain images for the profiles, so the silhouettes are mostly of Civil War soldiers and wanna-be Gibson girls.
