Another piece of embroidery created in memory of Sir Terry Pratchett.  This one is simple in execution, just black embroidery on plain cloth, but the design process was quite intense.  The image shows a telegram, and the morse code on it spells out GNU Terry Pratchett.  If you’re not a Discworld fan then you might want to click here for more information.

This piece is now available in my Etsy shop.  Click here to view it.  10% of the sale price will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Society.  More work in progress photos below.

The long bank holiday gave me a chance to both start and finish a project (novel, eh?).  It’s another mixed media embroidery piece and, like last time, I remembered to take some progress shots to show you how it’s done.  The quote is from Terry Pratchett’s Reaper Man, and the image is from Pixabay.
