“Broken Armadillo”, a hand-embroidered triptych, is a representation of the American zeitgeist. I chose an armadillo as representative of America and enlarge the image using the grid system. Each 9” x 9” square of the grid is hand-embroidered and joined together like a patchwork quilt, another iconic American form. But the individual squares do not line up exactly and the total image is askew and broken, like life in the United States. The whole work can be seen at
