Happy Friday Everyone! I hope you've had a great week, and will have any even better weekend. This week I'm going to introduce you to @threadthewick! I found Chels because she used #feelingstitchyig to make sure I saw her work. This week, instead of using the embed code from Instagram, I am going to screen cap the pictures from Instagram. You can get to Chels' Instagram account to see all of her work by clicking on her user name below. I hope this fixes the problem that many of us have when viewing Friday Instagram Finds in Feedly or email. Spoiler Alert: I included a bonus account at the very end :)
Chels creates pretty embroidery and cross stitch creations. One of the things she does is blend pop culture phrases with classic-looking cross stitch, like this, "I regret nothing" piece. I love how the colors pop on the black Aida cloth.
As a mother, these are words that we all long to hear! Again, I love how she created this phrase with cross stitch.
If you've seen my IG account, you know that I have a thing for delicately embroidered flowers. I just love them! These embroidered flowers Chels created are so dainty and pretty, and her stitching is beautifully precise.
Here are some more pretty flowers with, "I love you" stitched above them.
I hope you've enjoyed this edition of Friday Instagram Finds (FIF) on Feeling Stitchy, which is now brought to you weekly! Please leave comments below to let me know what you thought. If you'd like to be considered for FIF, or if you find a great embroiderer or stitch-related needle worker who you think I should feature, be sure to tag their pictures with #feelingstitchyig, and I'll take a look!
While you're on Instagram, make sure you follow Feeling Stitchy! We're @feelingstitchyish. We'd love for you to stop by and say hello.
Bonus IG Account!
I have a bonus Instagram account for you! This account doesn't have anything to do with needlework of any kind, but it's one of my favorites. It''s @tunameltsmyheart, which follows the life of Tuna, a beautiful Chiweenie (Chihuahua and Dachshund (Weiner Dog) mix) who leads a charmed life. He even has a book written about him!!
