Landscape Embroidery by Libby Williams

Imagine having your favorite place in the world captured with needle and thread. Little colorful stitches that eternalize the grass, sky and the buildings in a beautiful, one of a kind embroidery to remind you of that spot in a very unique piece of art. This is how Luxembourg based artist Libby Williams combines her passion for art and traveling; after exploring a new city or country, she embroiders the locations that she loved the most onto hoops that portray these places in a whimsical and unique style. And to give her work extra character, she often combines her embroidery with paint too.

Insect Embroideries by Humayrah Poppins

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.

You can find many more of Humayrah’s work on Instagram and in her Etsy shop.
