OK it’s safe to say that I am one of those girls who will run screaming for the hills at the sight of spiders and other gross insects. However, there is one insect that I absolutely LOVE and it’s the embroidered swarms of moths by Yumi Okita. The work that goes into these is just amazing and I think one of these will heal my insect phobia. Unfortunately, they’re all sold! Hopefully there’s more coming :-)

See them all on the Etsy shop.

While maintaining my Pinterest addiction I came across these embroideries by American designer Totally Severe aka Sarah. I feel a kindred spirit! She loves Seinfeld, embroidery and draws stick figures…I think we might be twins seperated at birth!

I first noticed Lizzie Finn’s work years ago when I saw her embroided version of and Apple ad. But I just stumbled across her work again and thought I’d share some great work with needle and thread with you guys.
