I often dig out my embroidery threads and a stack of old linens with the intention of stitching up some whimsical design, yet I never get beyond picking colours and threading a needles. Here are a couple cutesy stitched drawings by someone with more motivation than I.

Open Shop Project: Doily installation by Artyarn

I have come across these images a couple of times now and every time they catch my attention. Since the emergence of yarn bombings there have been a plethora of similar installations images bouncing around the world-wide web but what strikes me about this piece is its simplicity. A single concrete globe transformed and beautified in a stark, cold, and rather masculine looking public space. Well done Artyarn!

ArtYarn is a collaborative fibre arts project coordinated by visual artist Rachael Elwell. ArtYarn aim to use traditional knitting and crochet techniques in contemporary visual arts projects and aspire to promote the diversity and versatility of knitting and crochet as an artistic medium.

For more information about ArtYarn visit their website or blog. If you come across any yarn bombs please send me images! I’d love to post what you find no mater how large or small the scale.

It’s a lamp made of doilies. Obviously I’m in love and need to have one … or four. You can bet I’ll be doing some googling to figure out how to make these.

If you just can’t live without a pendant doily lamp check out ReMade USA, they have lots of fun bags too. Thank you, Shopping Queen
