Stitchgasm! – Naomi Shiek


Another Stitchgasm from Mr X Stitch

Naomi Shiek is an artist who embroiders and cross stitches. She calls this cross stitch I, in silhouette.

i-in-silhouette

I emailed her about the piece and this is what she told me: “The silhouette was done for a “Self Portrait” course I’m taking. I wanted something tactile, hand-made, traditionally female, but with a backhand comment about women vs. men.”

Check out more of her work at her flickr photostream or her etsy store.
