|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.
