Inspiration Wednesday – Embroidery

I haven’t done an Inspiration Wednesday in awhile, but embroidery is something that I always find fascinating. There are a few embroidery hoops on my shelves that I’m sure will get used this year. I hope these great artists inspire you to pick up a thread and needle or whatever creative tools you use in your artistic pursuits.

Cindy Steiler of marysgranddaughter does this awe inspiring piece Daring Young Girl on the Flying Trapeze.

Laura Amiss’ City Living makes me happy every time I see it.

Megan Whitmarsh‘s Yeti is just out there. I can’t stop looking!

Rachel J Lieberman of DangerPeach’s Why I Oughta in 3D is so cool, like a Hitchcock film you can put on your wall.

Patti Roberts-Pizzuto of MissouriBendStudios’ Summer No 7 reminds me of a classic children’s book.

Takashi Iwasaki, all his work is fantastic and modern and completely different from other things I’ve seen.

Melissa Crowe of LittlePinkHouse’s Little City Hoop/Pirates of Love (Galleon) is lovely and a valentine I would be happy receiving. (Hubs?)

Portland local, Cate Anevski’s Facebroidery No 7 is such a splendid idea. I personally love painting and drawing faces and seeing Cate’s work really makes me want to try my hand at embroidery next.

Samantha Cotterill of Mummysam’s If Charlie Were King is done in a wonderfully illustrative style. She has a book out right now that I am really anxious to borrow, Fanciful Felties.
