With these small-scale stitched works, inspired by the collection of fabric tokens at the Foundling Museum in London, I wanted to convey not only the contrast between the times I have my children and when I don’t, but also the sense of absence I carry around when they’re away. The title, ‘Missded’ is how my then 3 year old son pronounced the word ‘missed’ when saying that he’d missed me and the pieces – or tokens, are cut from stitched versions of drawings my son has made, or I have made with him.
