Susan Cowie embroidery

I'm in love.





I almost left it at that, as I'm without words to describe how much I love this beautiful embroidery by Susan Cowie. Some background, instead. Susan is a London-based embroidery designer, whose recent projects have included the tree pillow for the film Bright Star. There is a beautiful photo montage of a day in her life at the new-to-me but oh-so-fabulous blog, This is Naive (worth looking at for the blog header alone.)

Something very luxurious about embroidery. And I'm glad to see it in something other than monogrammed initials. Marija
