Estian needlework

I've been enthralled with applique and needlework lately. I love all of the tiny details and intricacy of it. Even when I paint, I tend to detail things. I've never been able to do light sweeping strokes with a brush. There is something about detailing that completely pulls you into your work, like nothing around you exists!
Here are some of my favorite Etsy examples. Stunning work!

I made a few hearts for Christmas presents last year, it was so much fun! Here is one:

 There are some very talented people out there! Hope you enjoyed the beautiful work by just a few of them.

Hi Debi! What you said is so true. I love getting lost in my stitching! Thanks so much for including my heart in this sweet post. I just adore all of Lisa's artwork, and the other pieces are so beautiful as well, including that darling heart you stitched up for a gift! So pretty!!!
Hugs, Paulette ;D
