I fell in love with the slightly sad illustrations, and the leaf shape. And now I need to put them somewhere so I can look at them all the time.
I’m not even joking, Jess, these three have really *really* inspired me to work harder to find my way with my stitching. I love doing all the needlecrafts so much, I get stressy that haven’t really found what I want to work on yet. Of course that’s silly because I’ll get there eventually, but this set in particular has made me impatient to get there! There’s some ideas I want to mess with and I had my notebooks out last night, taking notes – not that they’re in any tiny way related to what you’re doing, but I want to make something this beautiful too. xoxo
I bet you will find the thing that clicks during one of your samplers. When I did my first paper piece it was so obvious to me that it was The Thing.
These are gorgeous Jess!
Well, you know what I think. I love their sad, quiet, drama. And the subtle off whites really add to the effect. A perfect example of ‘meaning can be over rated/even unnecessary’, these simply ‘are’ beautiful.
Thanks, lady. “meaning is overrated” is going to be my new mantra, I think.
I love these, especially the last one. And the second one. Never mind, I love all of them.
I love the stitching on paper. Just how hard is it to do? do you draw the pattern on, or do you free style? thanks for the inspiration.
stitching on paper isn’t hard per say, but different from stitching on fabric.
i generally draw the pattern on the back side, but it depends on the exact situation. i’ve written up a little tutorial here and also an article in issue 2 of the &Stitches e-zine
thanks for the info. i am looking forward to trying this.
