Friday Inspiration - Kirsten Chursinoff

Autumn Allium Duo

If you're in need of inspiration today, quickly head over to the website of Vancouver, Canada artist Kirsten Chursinoff!  Kirsten uses scraps of many different fabrics sewn together as her backgrounds, resulting in gorgeous gradations of color.  I'm looking at all my little scraps very differently now!

Rosehips and Umbrels

On top of these pieced backgrounds, she machine and hand embroiders little pieces of nature - flowers, fruit, leaves, even weeds.

See more of her work on her Facebook page here and read an informative interview on Creative Machine Embroidery's blog here.

Happy Creating!  Deborah
