Crafting In White

I’m not sure if it’s because we just got a whole white wash of snow here in Minnesota, or because bright whites make me long for spring, but I am totally smitten with pale threads in crafting of late. Have a peek, won’t you?

I think the thing I love about crafting in white the most is that it makes everything about the texture, the shadow. You can see each thread, each stitch. It makes it somehow beautifully simple and pure, no matter what the medium or subject.

Looking to refresh your crafting? Try it all in white. Winter, spring, or in between, it will work for any season.

    I want that throw/blankie-thing made with giant yarn! Since anatomy is my profession, I’m really loving that skull and heart, too! And, I agree about texture…from an artist’s point of view, texture is VERY exciting and should always be considered!

    I adore tone on tone embroidery (white on white is soo crisp and clean and alleviates some of the boredom that all white can be).
