Pillowcase Has a Second Life

A piece of found embroidery, "Goodbye" was originally a pillowcase. I added the commentary and the hand. The idea of spending so much time to adorn a pillowcase is just so outmoded. The hand was a wave goodbye to this dying art. When I finished it almost everyone who saw it commented that it looked funereal. This was not my intent, nor was it my intent to hang it right by the front door - a further misunderstanding of the original intention! - but the fact is that it's the perfect spot for it, so there it lives.
