Brushing her Hair

This book, made in the later 2007-2008 winter,  is named for the title of a story I was working on while making it.  The pages are full of simple embroidery and text from the story as I was working out certain sections.

The story is about a pair of girls in high school trying to make sense of who they are and where they fit into their small rural town.  A lot of the story focuses on the tension between the two girls and one character’s need to leave the small town matched against the other’s desire to stay.  On the cover of this book you see Rissa looking at herself in the mirror, as she tries to figure out how she can be herself in the stiflingly small town.

Modified longstitch binding.
