I missed a couple weeks of these posts – apologies. I know you so look forward to them. (Ahem, sarcasm.)
THE CLAP! Found via Mr. X-Stitch.
This might be one of my favorite pieces ever. The technique, the subject, and the … uh … composition, I guess? I like how the image fits in the frame. Also, how do you think she (“she” being lagidgette on flickr) did those colors? I’m pretty sure the skin is regular old tinting, but the underwear and socks and shoes are so vibrant! Paint? Applique? I’m intrigued. Found via Mr. X-Stitch.
Awesome. I need to do some feminist-y samplers STAT. By curegreed on flickr.
Work-in-progress by doe-c-doe on flickr. Looking at this just really makes me love embroidery as a medium. Also, I should link to people’s blogs instead of their flickr accounts, when possible. I’m just realizing this. Anyway, here’s doe-c-doe’s blog post about this project.
Guys? I really love Jean-Luc. I very, very, very often pretend that he’s my uncle. Time to write a letter to Uncle Jean-Luc! Anyway, this lovely little piece is from Stitching Up a Storm.
Gorgeous. And apparently this fabric used to be a shirt, which makes the whole thing even more wonderful. By Laura Hartrich on Flickr.
More brilliance by doe-c-doe. I can’t say this for certain, but I’m pretty sure Utah is the awful-ties capital of the world. So seeing these just gives me hope.
I haven’t the slightest what this is, but I like it. And it looks like it would be a lot of fun to stitch. By ilhu industries on flickr.
Brak! Who doesn’t love Brak? Anyway, this lovely little thing is from Vegcat’s Yarns.
This song makes me all mushy, and I think this interpretation is beautiful. I really need to get around to some Bowie embroidery already. Allison Manch, the stitcher, was interviewed on Mr. X-Stitch.
