More stupendously great embroidery

I recently came across a rather wonderful embroidery book in one of my favourite local book haunts, Avid Reader at West End, and I’m so glad I snapped it up as a quick online search reveals that it seems to be out of print already. It’s really special, so I thought I’d share a few pictures. You can also see images from a Stitch Show exhibition held in Tokyo in September on the Tokyo Craft Guide blog (but I’m warning you, it’s a Pandora’s box!).

This 3D embroidery by Emi Takazawa is included in the ‘Traditional’ section, which I would have called the ‘This Will Render You Speechless’ section.

It’s hard to pick absolute favourites, but this robin by Kimika Hara would have to be right up there – talk about painting with thread!

Just lovely – flower buttons and cushion by Atelier Taffeta.
