Monday BlogDay :: Wren Handmade

10 August 2009

Because I'm a bit frantic with getting everything ready for the show next week I thought it would be a good opportunity to feature some of my favourite things from a year ago.

This time last year I blogged about some amazing embroidery by Laura Normandin, a former craft editor at Martha Stewart Living magazine.

Linen embroidered with hair. Who would've thought? What a wonderful - although verging on creepy - concept, beautiful motifs and stunning execution. The unruliness of the unfinished strands of hair are a beautiful juxtaposition to the exacting and symmetrical designs.

And because it's Monday BlogDay, have a look at Laura's wonderful blog and Etsy shop, both called Wren Handmade. Laura creates all sorts of lovely things - I featured one of her beautiful crocheted necklaces in a recent Etsy Top 10 list.

Aren't these photos of Laura's recent wedding fabulous... a bouquet of butterflies! There are more photos on her blog and also in Martha Stewart Weddings magazine.

Laura is one very creative lady and her blog is a delight to visit. Be sure to check it out if you haven't already... and Laura's website too.
