Hope your having a good week, It's been very hot here and it sounds like thunder on it's way.
Here is a picture of the machine embroidery I did on my course.
It depicts Ariadne from the old textile I sketched.
I did it straight onto the fabric with out drawing it on first, hence it's a bit wobberly.
This is a story about Ariadne.
Since ancient Greek legends were passed down through oral tradition, many variations of this and other myths exist. According to one version of the legend, Minos attacked Athens after his son was killed there. The Athenians asked for terms, and were required to sacrifice seven young men and seven maidens every nine years to the Minotaur. One year, the sacrificial party included Theseus, a young man who volunteered to come and kill the Minotaur. Ariadne fell in love at the first sight of him, and helped him by giving him a sword and a ball of the red fleece thread she was spinning, so that he could find his way out of the Minotaur's labyrinth.
