Chances are by now you're aware that I'm working on an Australian slang embroidery series (I mentioned it in this blog post back in July and they've started popping up on my social media accounts). So far I've finished three - 'She'll be right', 'Onya', and 'Righto'.
I love contemporary embroidery that combines the swirly, flowery gentleness of traditional embroidery with less gentle words. I also love language and quite partial to Australiana (both the song and all good things Australian). I decided to combine all three and this series is the result!
I have a not-so-good habit of seeing exhibitions in the few remaining days before they shut. Wonderland was no exception to this habit. I'm so glad I made it before it closed!
Everyone who entered Wonderland was given a map to help them find their way. They aren't any ordinary maps though. There were four different maps based on either the Mad Hatter, The Queen of Hearts, The White Rabbit, or the Cheshire Cat. I ended up with the White Rabbit. Each character had a unique map in both shape and contents! They also included a little chip which meant if you lined up Alice's bottom half (on the map) with her top half (on a table) an animation would play ON THE MAP!
