|Detail of Direction.|
I have to admit that I don't often think of cross-stitch embroidery as something that is used in fiber art. Don't get me wrong - I enjoy working it, but ... And then I found Lithuanian artist Severija Incirauskaite-Kriauneviciene's work! She drills holes in very unusual backgrounds and then uses cotton embroidery floss to cross-stitch the usual floral, fruit, etc. designs. It's extremely eye catching!

I love how it transforms these cold metal tools into something more cozy and feminine.
|Good Morning Composition, 2005. Metal pan, cotton.|
Her website has a large number of pieces to look at and Don't Panic has a good interview.
Happy Creating! Deborah
