Ironic Identities, drawings and embroidery.

Sometime ago I drew these colored pencil renderings of
tools I found around the house and garage. 
They are actual size in the sketch book.
I started this small quilt, based on a rack of tools I found 
in the garage, a while ago. 
They are smaller than the original drawings.
Finally finished it and just had it photographed.
There are things you don't see before quilts are 
photographed. I may have to redo the upper right corner.
The bunch of ropes is not a noose.
The title is Ironic Identities. 19 by 26 inches.
Adding the non-tools along with the hardware gave me 
another chance for an odd juxtaposition of images 
as well as the title.
