Covid 19 Part 1

I’ve always felt that memories need documenting in some way and for me it’s to fix them into stitch. Covid 19 Part 1 records our shared experiences during the first lockdown in 2020. It was designed in late summer and stitched just before lockdown 2 in November. As I was stitching I found myself doubting that some of these things had actually occurred – no planes in the sky and the loud sound of birdsong.  

We all lived through a joint experience in March that we’ll remember for years to come.

The piece is the second in a new body of work – the first being ‘The Sound of the Kenwood Chef’.
