Karen Daryne

"Lady Owl" & "Blue Bird"
 "Blue Bird, Black Sheep" & "Mermaid"

Karen Daryne makes these embroidered pieces that are a the most stunning combination of hand stitching, machine stitching and crochet i have ever seen!

Artist says: "I love old style with new twists. I am inspired by old photographs, old books, old poems, and old words, but see them with a new twist of whimsey. The intricate, yet simple style of the primitive handwork done by women and sometimes girls in the Victorian Era is enchanting."

Stop by her blog to see more of her amazing work.
