Xmas

I’ve been busy making a bunch of stuff for Christmas presents, and in the spirit of not blowing it by posting it all over the internet I am going to direct your attention elsewhere.

As discussed last week thread art is a new angle of exploration so I was delighted to find out that my internet friend funkembroidery is a self professed “embroidery nerd”. Her work is engaging for it’s irreverence, the freedom of images choices and stitches, as well as for the way she layers her patterns. She, like JD, isn’t afraid to do that, unlike my chicken shit self that needs to be backed into the layering pattern corner. She was also kind enough to recommend this book, (which might end up being a self secret Santa gift) plus she also has a Dune reference, something we are no stranger to here. Check it out.

Her applique skills kick my ass too.
