In Stitches

It is no secret that Jenny Hart knows her way around a needle and thread.
Her Sublime Stitching book (and those that have followed since) single-handedly brought the antiquated art of needlework solidly into the 21st Century, giving it a modern twist with stitch-by-stitch patterns for such kitschy goodness as margaritas, burlesque queens, and mom tattoos.
But her embroidered take on concert posters is just, well, sublime.
I can only wonder what my grandmas wou;d've made of that.

Amazing! Reminds me of my teen years embroidering a dragon on my denim jacket for a school project - totally annoyed the teacher but she had to admit it was original craft work all the same.
