|Nick De Ford|
I embroider, therefore am always keeping an eye out for stitchery in all shapes and forms, traditional or non traditional....I love maps, and am very attracted to Nick DeFord's embroidery on the World map above... What patience and precision that must have taken!
Inge Jacobsen stitches over magazine advertisements and covers...beautiful flow and movement here.
Maurizio Anzeri's work is completely intriguing!

I came across Penelope's work at Il Gatto Selvatico today on Etsy...

Such wonderful creations from needle and thread! And of course, the marriage of stitches and maps draws me in...

She also does custom work ~ I think that these would be conversation pieces any time they were worn!
And for the Grande Finale, be sure to take a look at my friend
Ingrid Mida's work, "Revolutionary Fashion Series" which I absolutely adore! Her talent is endless...
On this note I take leave to return to my trusty needle and threads...all of this has got my creative juices flowing, and I am looking at things around me and thinking how to "alter" them ~ I actually just bought an old handerchief from Paris which would be perfect to add something to. If I do, I will share! How do you feel about the embroidery hoop art out there? Not to disregard the workmanship involved, but I am a bit "befuddled" or bored of it...I think it is time to start getting a bit more creative and try something new!
