My Monday crush: Lily Bloomwood’s beautiful and delicate embroidered portraits of fabulous female icons. So incredibly detailed that the black tiny fragments of thread in her works could easily be mistaken for pencil strokes. So gorgeous!
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!
Although it was initially her grandmother who taught her to sew and she learns her techniques through antique books, Rosie Wright’s embroideries have a wonderful contemporary style in which thread and beads come together in beautiful, soft colored abstract shapes. It’s the close up photos of her work in particular in which her incredible attention attention for detail stands out. So elegant and gorgeous!
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.
