Poetic shrub


sleepy shrub, originally uploaded by whimsiology.

Oh my goodness! I just stumbled upon this on Flickr and don't you agree that I just HAD TO post this?

This is one of the things I love about embroidery. All the different forms it takes, sometimes completely unexpected. The imagery here is whimsical and poetic; and the use of stitching is just beautiful I love the little flowers and the colours.

Do yourself a favour and go check out the rest of whimsiology's photostream!
