Here’s my delightful pattern of a girl sewing that has been on Lori Kennedy’s TheInBoxJaunt.com . So many people have enjoyed making it I thought I’d post it again here today because of a posting by James Gurney
Gurney was using the Danish artist Hammershoi to illustrate a point and linked to a BBC video on Hammershoi (link to video) that showed briefly (at minute 13) this 1887 painting of his sister Anna. All those links are interesting, of course, but what’s just as much fun is to see how people have taken that girl to their hearts and created personal projects… some using actual clothing in the composition as a memory quilt, some having the girl sewing material from a just-finished quilt of their own, some left-handed, and one even recursively sewing the “Girl Sewing.”
If you’d to try one yourself, click for the $5 pattern download link. You’ll get a color chart and a one-page line drawing to enlarge to the size you need. Although some have even done it as a 8×10″ project, I originally envisioned it to be about 18″ square.
Enjoy the possibilities…
Cheers, Peggy Aare
