My sister-in-law gave me a bunch of her Grandma's fabrics and whatnot awhile back (oh say, 6 or so years ago) and I finally decided to give it all another look. There is some amazing stuff! Pillowcases, handkerchiefs, table linens, etc. There's also some wonderful embroidery on a lot of this stuff. I also found some great blank pieces for an upcoming embroidery project I want to do, I've been itching to work on it for awhile! I have a few more canvases to stretch and since I end up letting that sit a day between gesso layers I figure I'll work on some embroidery.
I absolutely love Joetta Maue's work. I keep her blog in my reader feed and love seeing the progress of her projects. There is an amazing quality and delicacy to her work that makes me so happy and inspired. The amount of work she does is astonishing and makes me feel so lazy! I am looking forward to doing some embroidery projects soon, it's been awhile.
