Bozena Wojtaszek – D

Dill

Inspiration: For the letters theme this year I decided to go with illuminated initials for food products. This is a perfect combination of my love for medieval art and food art. My D is for Dill – beloved addition to most of my vegetable dishes.

Again all of my favourite techniques were in use– applique, beading, embroidery, hand and machine quilting. I also dyed the background fabric for the “old papyrus” effect and painted some extra gold spots just like the medieval monks did.

  1. A great design, I love dill, the flower head is addition to the letter.

  2. You continue your series of miniatures very well. Reminds me of medicinal books from the Middle Ages. Painstaking realization. I really like the fineness and elegance of the dill. Bravo!

  3. Another beautiful letter both robust and dainty! I love the attention to details with the beads around the edges. Great work!

    It sure looks like a letter from the medieval manuscript. Dill sounds so simple but looks very elegant and rich in texture. It sure adds taste to your piece!
