I've always loved embroidered works. Last month, I checked out a book from the library on how to embroider pillows and other small accessories. I actually didn't get very far with any of the projects in the book, but I have been inspired to start incorporating some embroidery in my own art work.
Here are a few contemporary embroidered works that are pretty fabulous. Okay, I'll admit, I'm jealous.
