When you realize that you’ve saved a website under multiple headings in your “favorites” file you can be sure that this is one you go back to frequently. This is the case with Plays With Needles. This site is a needle worker’s dream, eye candy, instructions, kits, stumpwork, collage, Japanese style embroidery – I could go on and on.
One of my favorite posts is her thinking process as she takes photos of a crab seen on the beach and works through the thinking process of creating a three-dimensional needlework piece. (The photo is from her blog.)
I enjoy her ability to mix family with her art in her blog, a balance I hope to achieve.
I won’t go on, honestly, it is hard to know where to point you in her blog besides “everywhere” because there is so much to take in. For the serious textile artist, this is an amazing resource. Have fun.
When I find fabulous artists I never wish that I could draw/stitch/create like them. I’m always just glad to have found them and know that their art is there for me to come back to time and again. I’ve decided to start featuring some of my favorites every Friday so that you can enjoy them too.
