Mr X Stitch presents Beefranck’s Emporium – September 23rd, 2009
|Share the love...||
Over at Mr X Stitch we’re blessed with the services of Beefranck, the Queen of Ironic Stitching, who curates the terrific “Emporium of Embroidered Excellence and Splendiferous Stitchery”. Each week, these posts explore themes expressed through embroidery, and they’re ace.
So without further ado, I welcome you to…
Hi everyone! I’ve noticed a lot of stitched poetry out there lately, so I thought I’d share some of it with you.
This might look like a hand written letter, but it is actually a poem that has been embroidered onto a linen handkerchief. Nat Quintos Uhing used variegated floss to add to the handwritten look of this piece. She even made a fabric envelope to keep it in. You can see more details about this and her other beautiful work at her blog.
It’s obvious that these poems hold a special meaning to the people who took the time and the effort to stitch them, and I’m glad that they did so and shared them with the world. I hope you enjoyed looking through them, too.
Beefranck is the Queen of Ironic Stitching and is responsible for a lot of stuff on www.mrxstitch.com,
the number one contemporary embroidery and needlecraft blog on the planet.
She can often be found hanging out on the Phat Quarter on Flickr and co-hosts Emergency Pants, a podcast that is not for the faint hearted!
