Jenny Hart and Sublime Stitching

Sure embroidery might seem like a stuffy hobby, but I beg to differ. Especially when you have people like Austin-based artist Jenny Hart
and her company, Sublime Stitching .

She has revolutionized the once dainty practice of needle work with her quirky transfers. and now women(and men) are picking up needles and thread every where (myself included).

Here's one of her amazing portraits. La Llorona is a figure from Mexican folklore. I can stare at this piece for hours.

And here's a picture of a pillow case that I made for a special someone last year. All the designs came from Jenny Hart.
