Friday Instagram Finds No. 15

Can you believe it's already the last day of July??! I can hardly believe it. It seems that the older I get, the faster time passes me by. 2015 is already over halfway over, and next thing you know the holidays will be here!

Today I'm introducing you to Sarah from @iheartstitchart. Sarah creates beautiful hand embroidery art, designs, and kits. I enjoy her Instagram feed so much because her pictures are very well done and beautiful! And, of course, the subject of each of her photos is beautiful, and gives us a sneak peek into her world.


I don't know about you, but this bicycle with a basket full of flowers makes me think of bicycling through a quaint little town where my husband and I have a little picnic in the town square, then pick some flowers to bring back home with us. I think that's the kind of thing that all artists look for - a reaction to their art. The all black outline of the bike against the riot of colors of flowers in the basket make this a striking piece. And Sarah's stitches - each a work of art in their own right!

I want to run my fingers across this dragonfly hoop! That nubby fabric is calling my name. I cannot say enough about Sarah's stitches. They are so precise and tiny, and flow so well together. I don't think this hoop would be as pretty, either, if it was done in full color. I think the black stitching against the fabric says so much.

This ombre melon feather is beautiful! Again, Sarah's stitches are so beautiful, and the progression of darker to lighter melon gives the feather an airy feel. Something I enjoy about Sarah's IG feed is that she will often give us a portion of the whole picture, as in the pictures I've shared so far. 

I'll add this bonus picture in here of this Great Big Ball 'O Floss, as I'm calling it! Please tell me I'm not the only person who saw this and thought, "I want to separate this floss and untangle it!" I am pretty good at untangling floss, and it's such a rewarding task, too.

Great Big Ball O'Floss
