Well, at least it's better than anything Amber ever made.

This is a Jacobean/Day of the Dead/They Might Be Giants themed pillow. Approximately 15" x 16", cotton thread on cotton canvas. All hand embroidered and constructed (no machine was used in any part of the making). I think this is probably the world's best Jacobean/Day of the Dead/They Might Be Giants embroidery, but you will have to judge for yourself.grilled onions (1,850 posts) Sat May 17, 2014, 08:12 AM
Great colors and obviously it took a lot of time to craft this piece of art. A job well done!
I think Skins's island would be far more interesting, far more trafficked, if the primitives got down to discussing real issues of real substance, such as.....sex.
(I've written about this on DU Jr.)
Now, we on this side think there are very good reasons for being reticient about sex--franksolich is one of the biggest prudes one can ever hope to meet--but I'm talking about their side, not this side.
These are the old hippies who invented "free" love.
So how come sex appears a taboo subject on Skins's island?
Because the primitives keep the issue of sex behind closed doors, the world is deprived of much valuable anthropological knowledge. The primitives talk much about what they eat, what they enjoy and don't enjoy, what they think, what they feel, how they dress, &c., &c., &c.--but how they have sex, their experiences with sex, are just as important as these mundane things.
What ever happened to the wild, reckless, devil-may-care abandon the primitives had about sex forty, fifty years ago? Being s-o-o-o-o-o-o uninhibted on so many other things, one's mystified as to why they're so tight-mouthed about this one thing, which after all is a pretty major human activity."Lu looks like she could eat corn on the cob through a picket fence"--Big Dog

The headscarf primitive posts her products all the time.
I think she's just using Skin's to advertise her website.
She does give some interesting historical background to her merchandise.Obama isn't the problem. The problem is an electorate that would vote a man like him into office.

I don't get the theme and it's not something I'd want in my living room, but what I can tell of the embroidery, it is quite nicely done, with good use of the canvas (nicely centered and balanced, good color). This kind of embroidery can be very time consuming.

Frank, $kimmer threw down an edict about sex threads in the lounge about 10 years ago. They aren't allowed. Back in those days, I was able to finagle an invite to their offshoot sex site. It quickly closed.
Before the crash here, I had copied a lot of the member names & perhaps some photos. I'd never share the pictures, but they did include numerous "primitives of prominence" as you call them.Voted hottest "chick" at CU - My hotness transcends gender

You realize of course that this quest for information about the sex lives of the primitives is purely scientific, no prurient interest in it at all. As already mentioned, I'm a prude. It's strictly for purposes of anthropological research and illumination. Nothing more than that. Honest to God."Lu looks like she could eat corn on the cob through a picket fence"--Big Dog
