Feeling Random Friday with Laura Baverstock

When I first came across Laura Baverstock's account on Instagram, all I could say was - WOW! I'm pretty sure my mouth hung open in awe, too. Here's a description from her website as to what she does:
Laura Baverstock is a specialist hand embroiderer, textile artist and illustrator who mixes traditional stitching techniques with her contemporary design practice.  She creates embellished designs and bespoke pieces with modern materials and embroidery adding texture and interest.  Her use of strong shapes and silhouettes are contrasted against refined and delicate detail.
She is a Royal School of Needlework trained specialized hand embroidery artist who is a Trade Freeman of the Gold & Silver Wyre Drawers. I don't know what that last part means, but it certainly sounds like an accomplishment. Instead of reading me blathering on like a fan girl, take a look at some of my favorite pieces from Laura's Instagram.
