K is for Keelhauling, part of my Abecedarian of Demise Embroidery project, and also a little rabbit and flowers embroidery that I started to use up my odd bits of leftover floss.

One of a kind design hand embroidered in cotton floss on a cotton canvas ground fabric. 7″ x 15″. Jacobean/ Dia de los Muertos inspired artwork. Embellished with metallic thread around the skeleton. Flowers, insects, memento mori, macabre art. All hand made and hand sewn, stuffed with hypoallergenic polyester fiber. Embroidery on front only. Spot clean with diluted laundry soap when needed. Skeleton Pillow at My Good Babushka.
A bit of a Jacobean, Dia de los Muertos mash-up of an embroidery project.
I finished this little hand embroidered Matryoshka Ornament. It is at My Good Babushka.
I started this larger piece next. It’s not all drawn in yet, but I started there at the bottom and filled it in as I went.
I made a custom hand-embroidered fox pillow to go along with the rabbit pillow. They look very nice together. These are approximately 8.5″ 11″ and 9″ x 12″.

Continuing to put my nine herbs from the Anglo-Saxon nine herbs charm into the apothecary cabinet, I’ve added chamomile to the top right, then underneath I’ve added nettles and crab apple. Flanking the apothecary cabinet are angel trumpets and foxglove, both noted for their poisonous properties. In the air are golden weaver birds because St. Anastasia is the patroness of weaver. She was also a noted exorcist, so her apothecary cabinet says “Satana Ipse Venina Bibas” or “Satan, take the poison yourself.”
A folky embroidered work in progress. Lots of brick stitching.
