Flashback Friday: Tapestry...

A really old tapestry of mine... Circa 1999... "laugh at you stupid"
Tapestry by Mardi Nowak, 'Laugh at You Stupid'.

I've been attempting to organize my sewing room in our house.  It's been quite a task and I've been going through boxes that look like they haven't been opened for about 5 years and sending stuff to the charity store as well.  It's a great feeling to de-clutter and create a work space that is much more focused and hopefully easy to use.

While going through everything and trying to organize all of my bits and pieces, I came across this little tapestry that I made in about 1999.  It's called 'Laugh at You Stupid' and is much finer than the tapestries that I make now.  I do love this little work as it still stems from a collage starting point and was about the start of me using text in my work as well.  Also, the word 'stupid' looks great woven!  I now have this work hanging above one of my work desks as a little reminder of how my work is progressing.
