I was so happy when I was introduced to Jenny Hart‘s stitches. Embroidery takes much more patience that I currently posses, so thank you, Jenny for creating works I wish I’d done. Hart has another great series on her Flickr stream & a fascinating blog, Embroidery As Art, for anyone with an interest in contemporary embroidery. If you find yourself in Paris this September, check out her solo show at Gallerie LJ.
