Time for another look at some of the great work featured in the forums at Craftster. Note: Although they’re the pick of this week, they may have appeared before this week.
This week’s pick is two embroideries posted by loireag, whose craft of choice is usually knitting and crochet. She was inspired to embroider after a long lapse. The reason she chose to pick up an embroidery needle instead of a knitting needle? Craftster. In her blog, she says it was seeing some of the great stuff posted there that made her decide to try embroidery again, especially when she realized she didn’t have to follow a pattern.
Here’s a happy little monster – look at that toothy grin! She was really able to show his joy in this stitch.
She calls this wonderfully odd piece vine mouth. Cool, creepy, awesome. We hope you keep at it, loireag, because we want to see more!
This post made me think about something. How many of us were originally inspired by Craftster to start embroidering, cross stitching, creating patterns, etc? I know it was instrumental for me. What about you?
