Congratulations to all our friends who worked so hard, helping us construct this amazing snakes and ladders board for the Wellcome Collection. These are the pictures that the Wellcome library took, and in high resolution we can see every loving stitch you made.

For those of you who didn't see it, it is approx 8ft square, and embroidered on tie dyed printed aiva canvas with black PVC snakes and brown felt ladders. Printed on each square were drawings of microscopic pictures of nutrients and bacteria, with numbers on top. Embroiderers had free reign to decorate in any way they wished. The spots on the dice and counters were made with hand made felt. Made by friends of Euston Timebank and Prick Your Finger.

What fun! I think I can see my stitches. What is going to happen to the piece long term?

Good question M. It shall remain with Timebank and they will whip it out for special occasions, such as the Wellcome Trust Summer Picnic.

If the occasion is a little more formal, colorful wedding dresses you might want to choose the full-length Maxi Dress in couture wedding dresses Pleated Silky Knit. This is another dress that will suit couture wedding dresses
