been around the block

i absolutely adore this quilt that i found on the blog two straight lines. it's such a clever idea of turning the quilt squares into blocks and the embroidery embellishments couldn't make it anymore perfect. vroom vroom.

leigh pennebaker

look at these wonderful wire pieces i found through artstream. leigh pennebaker creates miniature wire fashion sculptures for stores such as barneys, fragments, saks fifth ave and kiehls. she successful captures the gestures and forms of female fashion divas using just many pieces of wire.

wood embroidery

i love seeing all the painted edges of my wood pieces all together. each on is 1 inch thick and painted a contrasting color. my embroidery pieces are now available at vitamin d(esign). you can also see my portfolio on trunkt and i have a few pieces on etsy.

i've been working on some new wood embroidery pieces but this time i'm using ash veneers and experimenting with linoleum cuts. heres one of my pieces without the embroidery...
