Current crush: Danielle Clough’s embroidered bits of flowers, birds and butterflies. With stitches that are so incredibly detailed that it appears these colorful birds will fly away any second now! They are part of a collaboration with artist Danelle Malan and illustrator Daniel Hugo, in which they are creating 7 large pieces of artwork themed on the 7 indigenous trees found around the Silvan resort in South Africa. The project is still a work in progress and you can follow Danielle on Instagram to see how it’s moving along!
My Monday crush: hand-embroidered adornments by An Astrid Endeavor to give your outfit a color-popping boost. Aren’t these gorgeous? Each of these gems is handmade by Astrid; a San Francisco based maker who takes inspiration form everything around her to create one of a kind embroidered jewelry and home decor. Love!
Oh, the beautiful things that can come from needle and thread. Humayrah Poppins once began her career studying fashion, but discovered embroidery to be her real passion. She then studied Hand Embroidery at the Royal School of Needlework and now uses her incredible skills to create beetles, butterflies and more lovely creatures that are so incredibly delicate and rich of details. Love!
I often wander through the woods near my home, where I gather leaves, twigs, feathers and other things I can find to bring back home and preserve. I also like to incorporate the treasures I find into my embroideries and with each piece I feel that a part of me has been embedded into my work. It is this part of me that I would like to share with others.
We’re rounding up the week with one of my favorite themes: embroidery! A selection of beautifully illustrated hoops, created by some my favorite stitchers.
