This is something I meant to blog about AGES ago, but laptop breaking, moving etc etc meant I didn’t get to!
At Thought Bubble Sequential Art Festival I met Bridgeen Gillespie who creates amazing embroidered artwork under the name Cherry and Cinnamon. I’ve been a fan of her works for ages and blogged about her. Soon after she saw the post she sent me this, and I was so incredibly stoked, it’s amazing!
Anyways, her work is ace. Go have a look at:
One of my favourite stalls today was the embroidered illustration Cherry and Cinnamon run by Bridgeen Gillespie. I’ve seen her work before online and believe I’ve blogged about it before so was really pleasantly surprised to see her there! Her work is absolutely stunning and really stood out! I got a lovely card of her work to put up in my new craft room. Check out her blog for more of her fab work.

I’m very into film based embroidery and crafts at the moment! Amelie is one of my favourite films, it’s just lovely. If you haven’t seen it, I recommend you do asap!

To Kill a Mockingbird 1 (by Sew Technicolor)
I’m re-reading To Kill a Mockingbird at the moment, it’s pretty much my favourite book and pulls at my heart strings every time. So of course, I’m looking through Etsy and Flickr for anything TKaM themed! This stitched piece is stunning.
"I chose Harper Lee’s "To Kill a Mockingbird" as my embroidered cover.
I read the novel for the first time earlier this year, and it’s one of the best books I’ve ever read. I loved its message and simplicity. For a book on such a serious issue, I was surprised by how funny and charming it was in so many parts!
I’m a nerd for book covers, and this is my favorite cover for “To Kill a Mockingbird.” I love silhouettes, anyway, but this little girl is a perfect Scout. And I just love how striking the design is, even though it only uses three basic colors.
My embroidery is stitched on grey broadcloth with a white cotton moon stitched on. I used a split stitch for all of the outlining and then went back and filled it in with (an adaptation of) long and short stitch. I didn’t want to use a satin stitch (except on the bird), because I wanted the “tree bark” to look rough instead of smooth.
My piece is based on this cover, illustrated by Sarah Coleman.”
Narwhals! next up, pokemon potentially.
