I created this unique mixed media piece by combining part of a Scrabble board with images from a 1973 Simplicity sewing catalog and a kids' book about mammals. The brunette model wears a pink long-sleeved blouse tied above her midriff and hip-hugging jeans. Behind her is leopard in the archetypal "cat stretch," mirroring the model's relaxed posture. The background is a psychedelic pink pattern. Scrabble tiles spell "Pause," and some of the underlying board is visible. The finished piece measures 7 inches (17.5 cm) square.

The frame is made from wooden racks that hold the letter tiles; they've been mitered and stained. The edges of the board are covered with plastic tape. The board itself is attached to the frame using metal tabs. At the top is a metal hanger.

This piece brings together my love of Scrabble and sewing with memories of 1970s.
