Inspiration: Spinthread






I am so very inspired by the magnificent work of Spinthread at the moment. My thoughts have been mostly revolving around crochet and plans for a crochet-filled holiday season, but you know, I think I might have to take some embroidery bits and pieces with me too ;) I've seen this wonderful work around and about a couple of times now, most recently on Emma's lovely blog. It feels strange to know little to nothing about the artist. I can only tell you that her name is Marañón and that her Etsy store can be found here and her fabulous Flickr Photostream here.

It is lovely, lovely work!So innovative,original and gorgeous colour schemes-
I see you are reading Julie and Julia, did you ever get to watch the movie too? I wonder how it compares to the book- I guess that's a silly question, books are always better than the movies aren't they? I realy hope you are seriously enjoying this, and getting lots of cooking inspiration- or eating...inspiration! we did!!

Truly fabulous. Very you too, some of your lovely brooches have the same geometric vibe, different angles and facets and surfaces... just awesome.

Lorena is actually the name of this talented lady (her shop is called Marañón), and she truly is talented! She's also so very sweet — she's just donated one of her necklaces for a giveaway on my blog. I'd love it if you entered: http://www.westervin.com/blog/2010/03/01/giveaway-embroidered-necklace-from-maranon/
