Especially Awesome

I was so excited to find this wonderful embroidery made by Judith Pudden in the Embroidery Group on Flickr. The detail in this work is amazing and I especially love the silver skirt. This embroidery is based on an Edward Gorey illustration. His outstanding work translates well to embroidery as I found out myself recently.  I actually have another one in the (or rather a) hoop at the moment. Check out Judith's other embroidery work here (impressive satin stitching!).

Now... I was wondering if you all would like another Feeling Stitchy contest? I hope so, because we have one planned in about a months time! Actually, I just realised that today's featured work would fit the contest rather well. Are you curious yet what the theme is?


  1. I was going to say, "this just screams Gorey!" Love it!

  2. Oh my goodness!!!! I LOVE Edward Gorey! This is so fabulous!

  3. @Megan I think black work traditionally is a form of counted thread and (thus) looks more 'geometrically' shaped, lines or not as flowing as with this design. But someone please correct me if I'm wrong!!
