Re-introducing: Carina

Tree of Life embroidery
Stitched by Carina

A few more re-introductions are in order this week as we celebrate all the new and current bloggers on Feeling Stitchy! Next is Carina, or Wardi, as she calls herself on Flickr. Her blog has always been a huge inspiration to me - she is an artist with a gorgeous sense of color and unbelievable energy for creating. She has a shop with beautiful, elaborate patterns like the one above, and she is always up to something new. It's an honor to have Carina with us!

A mini-interview with Carina:

Your favorite DMC floss color? 907 (lime-y green), 740 (vibrant orange) and 3846 (happy turquoise) - sorry, couldn't pick just one! ;-)

Your favorite embroidery project? Tree of Life (above), one of my first patterns.

Your inspirations? Nature, folk art, history, colour...

Your blog and shop url?
Carina's Craft blog
Polka & Bloom

One word answer:
Freehand or pattern? Freehand
Messy or neat? Messy
Cute or edgy? Edgy

Hi, I'm floresita, editor of Feeling Stitchy. I'm an avid stitcher, knitter, and crafter. You can see more of my stitching on Instagram and my blog. My vintage transfer collection is on Vintage Transfer Finds.

Feel free to email me with any ideas for the blog!
