LADY IN THREADPosted: June 14, 2013
Isn’t she a beauty?
I found this piece while poking around Etsy searching for clues on how to create a needlepoint pattern. I love the use of colour blocking in the composition, which allows the work to be homey while being modern and not too kitschy. Not to mention the bright primary colours, her wonderful dress and that bowl of fruit/yarn. Truly a masterpiece!
The shop that she comes from has a wonderful array of vintage housewares. Including a collection of Heloise’s Housekeeping books which if I wasn’t forbidding myself from shopping online for the rest of the month, would be on their way to my house.
