This project is along a similar theme as the fourth project. I had bought two of the same frames and was planning on hanging them together. This time I wanted to make something for Dan.
In 2011 Dan went on a motorbike road trip to Germany with a group of his friends, the Bratwurst Blitz. Even though he had a broken tumb and couldn't ride his own bike it is one of the most memorable experiences of his life. I wanted to do something to record his trip other than the customary photo albums (which he has).
So I printed off a map of the UK and Northern Europe and asked him to mark out (roughly) the route that they had taken to get to Germany.
Once he had done that I hand embroidered the route and put it in the frame, along with photographs of him and his friends from the trip.
