Most of the designs in my vintage embroidery stash make chores look fun, like the kitten with the canister vacuum. This gal looks like she's having much less fun. (Maybe she'd rather be at her sewing machine, like she is in the other image from this set that I stitched last year?)
As soon as I saw this one, I got the impression that she wasn't having much fun. I think it's the way she's so bent over (but look at that perfect posture!) and her sleeves are all scrunched up. I'm sure this dress is the most faded one from her closet. Or maybe she doesn't hate mopping. Maybe she's serene and in the moment.
Yup, I'm still making up stories to go with just about every block that I stitch.
