Friday Instagram Finds No. 30 with Beth Colletti

Hello! I hope you're having an awesome day. This post published at 6:00 am my time, so I'm sure I'm still fast asleep. But I know our readers in other parts of the world are more than halfway over with their days. Take a moment to sit back and relax, and look at some beautiful stitching.


The first thing I'm struck by when I look at Beth's Instagram feed is the color - bright, beautiful, and bold color. I love it! The next thing I'm struck by is her blending of nature in her work. Beth's sunflower hoo is one of the most amazing pieces of embroidery I've ever seen! Now those are some embroidery goals to strive for!

Her use of mixed media with embroidery is beautiful, and combines fabric, paint and floss with lovely quotes and typography. The last picture shown here gives a lovely closeup look.

Beth's pictures are beautifully staged, and light, bright, and beautiful! I cannot emphasize enough how important this is in a fantastic Instagram feed.

Over on my personal blog, Random Acts of Amy, this month's Backside of the Hoop has been published this morning. I interviewed Mary Corbet of Needle 'n Thread, and you can read all about her embroidery story, process, and how she finishes off the backside of her hoops here.

Hi, I'm Amy - I feature interesting embroidery and stitch-related photos I find on Instagram. I'm a hand embroiderer and maker.
