I've been so overwhelmed lately by the magnitude of inspiring talent out there... I could so easily just give over my blog and all my time to trying to document all of them. I could, but, then again, what to do with this finger-itchy feeling that makes me want to start experimenting myself?! Brie Ruais is my latest OMG-how-amazing-are-you-*girl-crush*... Even though I've been obsessively loving the crochet lately, my love for embroidery is still going strong. Ruais is a self-confessed hoarder and collector of ephemera and she often incorporates her finds into her work. And this is part of what I find so exciting - it's the mixed media aspect of weaving together disparate objects with a finely honed and delicate skill which just blows me away :) Her website is here and I found her via this lovely blog.
