Escher in Embroidery

This is my journal page for TAST week 13.  This was proclaimed a catch-up week so no particular stitch was given.  My journal needed a page for the week however, so that the number of pages would even out.  So I used backstitch to create this page.
MC Escher is one of my favorite artists, his pieces are endlessly fascinating.  And yes I meant to say that.  On March 27, 1972 MC Escher died and we lost a great artist.  If you are unfamiliar with his work then I highly suggest you check it out.  You won't be disappointed but you may very well be muttering to yourself.....how did he do that?
On another note, I was informed that we will have an extra week added to TAST so that we will indeed have 52 stitches.   Arggghh.  My little ocd issue has told myself  I will just have to create 'end papers' to my journal to make the pages even out.  Good thing I have lots of fabric and thread!

That is VERY cool. I used to do a lot of stitchery when I was in my 20's -- loved it!
