This embroidery is based on a drawing. I made it for a book, where I combined poetry and drawings. Guess how many people read this book? TWO. Me and a secret person, who is not my husband, because it’s written in Polish.
Anyways, drawing was never really my thing, because I kept on hearing how bad I am at this. I didn’t feel hurt, no, no, no, I just believed that skill drawing is the only thing that counts and I’m not that gifted. I don’t know why I remember it so well, but once I had to draw with a pencil a vegetable or a fruit for a school assignment. Don’t ask me why, but I chose a cucumber. I guess I thought its shape is so easy, I will manage. My cucumber won the competition of getting one of the worst marks in the class. I tell you, this cucumber was hilarious. So bad! I’ll tell you another time, why I came back to drawing.
This drawing is now available in form of the embroidery in my shop and it is a self-portrait.
