Embroidery


Do you know of Yumiko Higuchi? I follow her on Facebook and Instagram and I can't get enough of her beautiful creations. 

I came across her work a couple of months ago and have been wanting to try a little embroidery myself. I dabbled at some stitches the other day and it was fun but I'm afraid I have a long ways to go before I'll be able to finish any sort of embroidery project. So many stitches to learn! And I have to stop being so messy with my stitches.

I'm dreaming of making a couple of tea towels and wall decorations and maybe some bandanas for our Piri's Place guests. One day. One day. 

What are you dreaming of making lately?

  2. I remember when I was a kid and my mom was teaching me and my sister embroidery, while we would be visiting my grandma ^^

    I've been dreaming and in the process of planning a painting! Although I'm still not sure what I want to do.
    I hope and look forward to seeing some embroidery projects from you!

    Good luck!

  10. You have to check out this artist called Chloe Giordano, she does amazing artworks that always leave me inspired. I'm sure, just like your knitting you'll ace embroidery too! (or already have!)

  11. Lovely, lovely, lovely work here Jane. Embroidery is one of my dream skills that I would like to learn - along with indigo dying (japanese style), makie and glass blowing. This list of mine keeps growing!

  15. What do you mean your stitches have to be less messy?! These are so gorgeous!! My grandma taught me and my sister how to do embroidery when we were little but I'm sooo out of practice now. You're motivating me to try and pick it up again...it really is fun and so so pretty.
