Friday. The end is in sight. And so is this lovely LOVE sampler by TMcFayden on Flickr. I thought you’d enjoy it too.
Have a grand weekend!
I am changing my eating in hopes of some day getting back to stitching. Sorry, allow me to explain. I’ve had some pretty severe tendonitis in both hands, thanks to mouse use at work and my insane love of needlework. That means I’ve been in physical therapy and haven’t picked up a needle in months. I literally can’t pick up a needle. Thhbbpppppttt….
One of my last ditch attempts to relieve the inflammation in my hands is to completely change my nutritional intake — anti-inflammatory foods only (except for dressing. I will never give up Ranch. That’s just…No.).
In celebration, please enjoy these elegant felt foods by the aptly named Felt Cuisine. Yummm.
Gorgeous. Right down to the seeds in that strawberry. I kinda’ want to eat that ravioli. And these are all patterns so you can totally make them yourself.
Om nom nom, Shannon
Did I spell her name right? *checks again* Phew, yes. I did. Welcome to the work of Kari Breitigam. Or perhaps you beat me to it, which is fine. I’m discovering new people e’rry day.
In any case this talented Houston artist has caught my eye with her precise, meticulous stitching.
This is the reason it’s called satin stitch, people. Look how tight and seamless it is. (Did that sound erotic? I almost called it “buttery.” But, no, really…)
Helloooo! Happy Friday! Can you tell I’m a bit ecstatic? Maybe because it is 0 freakin’ degrees here and I’m ready to hole up in the house for the weekend. Just wanted to pop in and wish you a happy weekend as well as share this fun project. My mom just sent me the link via Country Living: Embroidered wall art made from grain sacks. Would look great in a vintage kitchen, methinks.
Alas, my hands are still crunked up due to the aforementioned tendonitis. So I will not be stitching this weekend. I will be reading and cleaning the Castle and hanging out with my boys. Perfection. You?
Benhy Bradshaw Costello has brought together two of my favorite things: literature and stitching. I discovered them through the Phat Quarter Flickr group run by Mr X Stitch (who else?). You can find other photos of Benhy’s work in his Flickr stream. You’ll also find photos of men in drag. So that’s fun.
