Happy Friday! I know I said that last week was the last Friday Instagram Finds, but life got away from me, and I didn't have time to do what I wanted to this week. Do you ever feel like maybe you've bitten off more than you can chew? That's me right now :)
Let's take a look at Sheryl Kessler from the Instagram account @fairisle37 ! Sheryl creates beautiful hand stitched fabric collage art. Sheryl tags her pieces with #slowstitching, which according to the website The Slow Stitching Movement is:
The Slow Stitching Movement is an illuminating revolution within the stitching and fiber art industry, launched by international quilting personality Mark Lipinski. Modeled after the international Slow Food movement, The Slow Stitching Movement is open to all fiber and needle artists and will prepare you for a higher form of creativity and important work in the needle and fiber arts, be it quilting, knitting, crochet, tatting, embroidery, rug hooking, weaving, needlepoint, cross stitch, etc.
I love this movement, and love what Sheryl has done because of it! The variety of stitches and layers of fabrics that Sheryl uses create textured pieces with depth. Here are some of my favorites from Sheryl's Instagram.
