Have you ever watched 'The Bridge'?

Nope, nor me ....

It's a Scandinavian crime drama, that has been enthusiastically recommended to me by a few people whose viewing tastes I trust, so I think I'll give it a go.

And it's also the subject of my entry in Pam's Desert Island Discs CJ - as the song I chose from her list is the programme's theme tune:

Hollow Talk by the Choir of Young Believers

The series starts with a female body being found, in two parts, at the centre of the bridge which joins Denmark to Sweden - half in Denmark's jurisdiction and half in Sweden's - and so that's the rather gory inspiration I took for my embroidered piece:


Not having seen the programme yet I have no idea if the actual body looked anything like this, am taking a bit of artistic licence :)

I do love working with material and embroidery for a change - which is just as well as the next journal coming my way in this circle is another fabric based one.....


Oh - and talking of making little pieces of art based upon / inspired by songs ...... can I interest any of you lot in taking part in Marit Barentsen's Top 2000 party this year?  It was so much fun last time around .....  go check out the list, there's at least one song there for everybody :)

Nope, never seen or even heard of The Bridge but I'm loving your interpretation in fabric. Seriously, is there anything you CAN'T do?

I love it...It doesnt look gory at all...well, maybe if you know the story behind it but I am pretending I dont....lol

Haven't watched 'the Bridge' either but I love these kind of series/movies so maybe I should! I love your cut lady - I always like these kind of 'weird' images and scary stories in art. And YAY for promoting the top 2000 party - I'm so looking forward to it - looking through the list already! Great that you will be joining again!
