Wonderful Wednesday #70 - Linladan

Wonderful Wednesday 70 - Linladan as featured by floresita on Feeling Stitchy

How lovely is this vintage reproduction Leaf Swirl kit by Linladan? Using vintage Swedish kit patterns from the 50s and 60s, Tanja from Linladan lovingly recreates kits using screenprinted linen and vintage linen floss. Since we last spoke, I disappeared down a rabbithole of vintage Swedish embroidery from the 50's, 60's and 70s. This rabbithole led me straight to Linladan, who posts tantalizing photos of finished projects on Instagram @linladan.

I am fascinated by the gorgeous colors and unexpected sheen of linen floss - so fascinated that I ordered a small sampling for myself, and I can't wait to try them out!

Have any of you ever worked with linen floss? Aside from the discontinued DMC linen floss, which had a matte finish, I have never seen or handled linen floss, so I am excited to see how it stitches!

I fell in love with this Fairy Tale Castle screenprint, if you'd like to try your hand at this I would hop to it, as there are limited quantities available.

This breathtaking version of the Fairy Tale Castle was stitched by @clarkeandridley on Instagram using pastel linen floss from Linladan - isn't it amazing?

Don't forget to follow @linladan on Instagram if you love what you see, but fair warning - her mouthwatering images might make you want everything in her store! :)
