Note: I couldn't post yesterday due to health issues, so back-dating this post by a day.
I've been surrounded with handmade art-work since I was a kid. My mom was a real artist. She made a lot of pretty things using different techniques. My favorite are these hand-embroidered cushion covers.
The one on the right was completely made by her. The one on the left had been started by her, but then left incomplete. I finished it sometime during my school days. If you look carefully, you'll see it is not as good as hers. My stitches are tighter than hers. They shouldn't be that way. Well, I am a hard critic, even of my own work.
Anyway, I really like the cushion covers for their intricate cross-stitch pattern. I've never done such detailed cross-stitch work on anything else. One day, I dream of making an entire bed-cover using cross stitch. I say "one day" because I know I'm neither disciplined enough, nor healthy enough to start this any time soon. I've got too many pending projects already! [rolls eyes with a sigh]
What about you? Do you like handmade art-work? Do you create art-work? I've seen some of my blog buddies make really awesome Zentangles. I haven't tried that so far, but it sure does look pretty. I'm personally more into embroidery or up-cycling stuff. Do you have any favorite technique of art-work? Do you have favorite handmade art-work?
