Textile Art

As someone who willingly spends her days under a mountain of fabric, lace and thread; it probably goes without saying that I love textiles. I especially love when people take those seemingly crafty ingredients and turns them into beautiful works of art. Here's a few of my favorites:

Ana Teresa Barboza takes embroidery and knitting to the next level.

Janet Echelman makes amazing textile sculptures that float over cityscapes worldwide. 

a great post with many more awesome pics on The Jealous Curator here!

How about an aquarium of jellyfish? I love the Meet the jelly's page on Sayuri's website

Mister Finch creates a whole fairy tale world out of fabrics. 

I couldn't care less about cars, but an embroidered car might make me change my mind.

Do you have any favorite textile artists that I need to know about?

Drip Dry

Cary Grant is my man..., my free pass were he still alive [and in to the ladies].


Audrey Hepburn is adorable.

I wouldn't've shut that door if I were her.

Her dresses? Perfection.

The movie is Charade. Watch it!
