As some of you may know (or may not know) I’m highly interested in anatomy, indeed its my first love. Its what i studied at university and what, if i had to teach anything, i'd be quite happy teaching.
I can’t help loving it and I blame my mum for letting me watch quincey as a kid. How bodies work is completely fascinating but then so is the history of the anatomists and the resurrection men who helped fuel the science, getting paid for providing bodies and body parts, abit like cash for gold but with bigger envelopes!
I think the most well know of these chaps has to be burke and hare who turned to murder to supply the body trade and after being caught, burke was hung and dissected too! I believe that they tanned his skin and made things from it (very crafty but not something I’ll be trying soon, despite thinking that I should add more science to my makings!). They are alot more careful about the use of bodies these days, lots of new rules and regulations, loads since i dissected too (we'd never get away with some of the things we got up too now!)
So if i add more of my anatomical love to my sewing what should i sew? an eye ball? i have been promising myself an antibody! And just where will i find the time when i've half a table to fill for a craft thngy in novemeber (i know its a way away but everything in my life takes 14 times as long as planned due to procrastinatory or child or work or other calamities!)
Should i sew anatomy into fabric or fabric into anatomy? (i mean should i make a fabric eye ball or quilt with my toe nail clippings?)
