Columbine in Progress
Victoria Matthewson of Love In Idleness stitched this beautiful Columbine flower in silk thread on silk fabric. I'm in awe of her beautifully intricate shading on this project - the detail and depth are really quite incredible.
In addition to Victoria's obvious stitching skill, I also love that she showed us this project from start to finish, taking progress pictures as she worked. The above photo is where she started, and there are several more progress photos in her Flickr photostream. I must remember to do this more often with my own projects, there's something very special about getting to see embroidery come together, step by step!
