Anatomy Lessons

19 Aug

I have a weird interest in medical drawings. I especially am interested in medieval anatomy illustrations Anyway I have spent some time recently looking at some of my anatomy books and was inspired to start on a new embroidery series.

I made this digestive tract piece first. I am not sure why I think it is so funny. I like making things that send me into fits of giggles periodically while I am working. I think it may be throwing up blood, but maybe it is a speech bubble that needs filled.  Any ideas?



I made this heart which I simply used a cotton/rayon blend embroidery floss on some cotton broadcloth using a simple modified backstitch. I cut it out and pinned it on some pretty cotton fabric that I dug out of a remnants bin years ago.

Well, there is a nervous system that needs completed…

    I am so glad I found your blog – especially these awesome pieces! I too am fascinated by anatomical drawings; when I was about fourteen I created a super hero called ‘Artery Man’, but then never took him on any adventures, as he took too long to draw. I will be sure stop by here again for more inspiration!
