Welcome to XStitchers of Instagram where we share a groovy Instagrammer whose needlework deserves more attention! This month it’s @ashleemarcus!
For several years Ashlee has been using cross stitch and canvaswork techniques to create some really arresting content! From serene pieces like “Hello Gorgeous”…
… to the saucier side of stitching with pieces like “Coco”, Ashlee has clearly mastered cross stitch design and execution.
She successfully exploits the contrast between “nice” embroidery and political commentary and uses her work to deliver some terrific punches!
And she isn’t afraid to go for the big pieces either! “The FountainHead” must have taken an age, but it’s a magnificent piece!
