Lately I'm obsessed with embroidery

For over a year now, I've been working on a series of mixed media pieces and have been experimenting with different techniques. Through much trial and error, I've found a combination of processes and mediums I like and am moving forward with the next few piece in the series (squee! will share when they're done.) Throughout the process, embroidery has been a big part of the exploration. Recently, our lovely, local art museum The Frist Center for the Visual Arts, housed an exhibition that was filled with wonderful, very old textiles, many of them hand embroidered. Ever since I saw that exhibit, I've had a renewed fervor towards embroidery and have found much inspiration online.

Here are some pieces I am particularly in love with:
