Following on from my last post I would like to introduce to you two remarkable ladies who create unusual and original art using needle and thread. The first is Art4Sol who stitches folk art inspired collages, decorated with lots of hand stitches. I particularly love her fabric dolls pictured here. The second is Kaylacoo who paints with fibres and threads, translating pages from her sketchbook into embroidery pieces using hand and machine embroidery.
It is always interesting to see how other artists work and to see the creative process in action. Fortunately both ladies have inspiring blogs which show work in progress, from early sketches, through to the finished article which are both instructive and informative.
