Inspiration: Susie Cowie








There are so many talented embroidery artists but I think the exquisite work of Susie Cowie has that wonderful ability to leave one both breathless and totally inspired. I'm midway in quite a few projects but now find myself itching to get back to some more embroidery work. Based in London, Cowie makes her living as a freelance embroidery designer with a portfolio that covers fashion and interiors, costume and prop pieces... (you might have spied her embroidered pillow in the movie Bright Star). I think that's why I'm so enthralled as well... that she can do what she loves and pay the bills too... it's the dream :) Find more of Cowie's wonderful pieces on her website here.

I thought her work looked beautiful with a sensitive element. I love the Athropologie exhibition pieces. (Start saving you pennies Kylie! I think you might go a little crazy!)

It is absolutely take your breath away stuff. Makes going off to do the shopping any tick of the clock seem utterly superfluous.
