These are some of my favourite recently-spotted floral fancies…
But still – they are so nice to look at. ♥
This quilt by Kim McClean really takes it to a whole other level, doesn’t it?
To add to the awesomeness, this whole quilt was done by hand.
You can, if you think you have the patience and staying power, buy the pattern and the fabrics to make your own version of the quilt here.
I don’t think I’ll be doing that. I couldn’t – and wouldn’t want to – replicate someone else’s work.
But it is just amazing. ♥
After weeks of adding examples of other people’s inspirational stitching to my stitchery witchery pinterest board, I’ve got going with a bit of stitchery of my own.
I find that I really like the combination of hand and machine stitching.
I never would have thought that hand and machine embroidery could live so happily side by side, cheek by jowl, in the same piece.
