Having torn out badly patterned golf wallpaper from my home before, I usually have no great love of the stuff. With the addition of embroidery however, I have found a new love. Not that I’m going to end up springing for these gorgeous pieces, but it does make me wonder… what strange thing can I hoop today?

I bet you could find some wallpaper sturdy enough to get into a hoop. Hmmm…

Machine Embroidered Bowls

I’m in awe of the amazing work of Anne Honeyman, an embroidery and textile artist who creates these amazing vessels by machine embroidering on soluble fabric and shaping them wet into bowls. Each vessel is one of a kind, and they are all so stunningly beautiful.
