Feeling Inspired!

There has been a lot of beautiful embroidery turning up, around and about the web lately and I've been reminded how much I love it.  Here, see for yourself:
Caroline's Bag in White
Cottage Embroidery Pillow
Vestido Mexicano
Myrna May's Cake
Antique rug
SeptemberHouse's Pendant
Am I right? So unbelievably lovely!

Can you believe that rug was meant to be walked on? Are artisans intense or what? We just want handmade beauty to be everywhere—even under our feet!

I'm definitely feeling stitchy, but I seriously doubt I'll try to tackle a rug. But something like that cake, now that's another story...

Happy stitching!

Hungarian embroidery is my favorite... but perhaps i'm biased because my grandmother used to do it...
