This past weekend, while watching the latest episode of Mad Men, I started a new embroidery. It’s my first one in many months! It feels good, ya’ll. Just like the work of Annalisa Bollini. The Italian illustrator creates these mixed media scenes that are a combination of embroidery, appliqué , and paper bits. She has exquisite line work that’s made with tiny stitches, and I love how it’s a substitute for a pen or pencil.
Annalisa has prints of her work for sale in her Etsy shop. You’ll find brooches there, too.
And… one last that’s apt, especially since it’s Friday. Annalisa gives this sage advice on her website: If you don’t know what to do, eat some chocolate!
