Artist DYB RR/ Gerry's Block

CQIのアーティストDYBに参加しています。アメリカのジェリーは特定の画家ではなく、お人形を抱いている少女という絵の題材の方に焦点を合わせました。彼女のブログで6枚のそれぞれのブロックを見ることができます。その中から私が選んだのはこれです。

You can see Gerry's six naked blocks on her blog. Here's the naked block I chose.



子供の頃大好きだったバーネット夫人の物語を彷彿とさせられたからなのですが、よく見ると実際にはどの主人公とも違います。『小公女』のセーラはお人形を抱いていましたが黒い髪だったし、『小公子』のセドリックは黒いビロードの白いレース襟の服に赤いサッシュを結んでいましたが男の子だったし、『秘密の花園』のメアリーはこんな雰囲気の女の子ではなかったし。でも「いいじゃないの」と開き直り、三つの物語を合わせたような要素をちりばめて刺繍を終わらせました。

A girl of the print reminds me Frances Hodgson Burnett's books I loved in my childhood, though of course she is not Sara of "A Little Princess" (because she had black hair), nor Cedric of "Little Lord Fauntleroy" (he is a boy) and also not Mary of "The Secret Garden". But I took my first impression and made a world of three stories.



ビーズをつけて完成です。
Now finished.



I hope Gerry like my work.

Hideko, this is so lovely. I love the little mansion and walkway with tree leading up to it. Everything is so petite and perfectly stitched. I know Gerry loves it (so do I). Gorgeous work, as always. Hugs, Cathy
