hand-stitched blogging

another fp girl told me about this awesome embroidery by brooklyn artist iviva olenick.  she describes her work as small-scale, semi-autobiographical pieces that make up a hand-stitched blog. what a neat idea! the pieces include signs she sees on the street, maps of brooklyn and little quotes or things on her mind, and she also writes about the inspiration behind her projects on a blog called were i so besotted.

i really like the idea of sewing inspirational quotes or song lyrics onto blank tshirts or pillows! adding to my long list of projects i want to try…
