If you love all things textile, and particularly slow stitch mark making like embroidery, be sure to check out Anna Hergert’s new book Inspiration Kantha – Creative Stitchery and Quilting with Asia’s Technique.
In her book, Anna, an accomplished textile artist and teacher, opens up the world of kantha by sharing the mystery of this ancient technique that is at once sublimely complex and simple.
Step-by-step instructions accompanied by professional photographs will guide you through several projects to get you going on your personal discovery of this beautiful art.
Glad to have a stormy day in the middle of the summer. Perfect for sitting and stitching.
I’m rediscovering my love of needle and thread, textiles, texture, quilting and color, color, color and more color. However, first things first. Before jumping into new projects I’m completing a few left over from the past.
Here’s a peek at one (a self portrait) I’ve had on the go for sometime. I’ve finally decided how to finish it so I’m looking forward to a creative weekend.
