I have finished this embroidery of one of the Tara McPherson Sublime designs! I'm calling it Uni-girl and Sea-pony (though I guess it's really a Uni-Sea pony).
I stitched it on a linen I found at the thrift store. I have been wanting to stitch these patterns for a while now because I am a huge fan of Tara's work.
She has such a whimsy to her style that also has a touch of sensuality and oddness that I really love.
If you are not familiar with Tara's paintings, please go check them out on her site.
Here's a couple that I really like.
|"The Love Space Gives Is as Deep as the Oceans" 2010|
Does this look familier?
|"Lost Constellations" 2008|
I also recently attended the opening for Gay For Eagles, a fiber art show in Siler City, NC. It was an absolutely amazing show filled with great stitching and I will post about it soon.
Also in other news, I have made new friends in the stitching world! Who knew these fabulous ladies lived just down the road---how I love the internet. We got together to stitch and chat and it was lots of fun, so go check out their blogs here and here. They really inspired me and I can't wait to get together again!
