A little Gormenghastian fan art; embroidery on printed fabric, approximately 5 inches high, for the nerd-along June Flash Mob.  My fictional hero and inspiration is Doctor Alfred Prunesquallor of Gormenghast, invented by Mervyn Peake. (see the Doctor as my avatar)     He pronounces the statement below after delivering Countess Gertrude of baby Titus, the 77th Earl and Heir of Gormenghast - surely the pinnacle of his career as Physician to the House of Groan!



From Titus Groan by Mervyn Peake  http://www.mervynpeake.org/

Your embroidery never ceases to awe me!  You have outdone yourself!  I love the frame around the quote, it's gorgeous!  Did you design it yourself?  (Wouldn't surprise me in the least if you did....)  Cheesy

Thank you, but no, I didn't design it, I just found some nice scrolly frame clip art, printed it on the fabric and stitched over it.  Totally cheating!   Cheesy

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Fab stitching, as always! I love the texture the different colors give.
