A Cactus, A Sailboat, and the Girl Who Knitted Love.

Artist Ana Raimundo's off-beat embroidery has stolen my heart this morning (yes, that is a man falling onto a cactus - his name is Ouch and he's "a nice guy," Ana writes).


Ana's Etsy shop, Fric de Mentol, also stocks these charming "underwear bags," perfect for traveling,


and these punchy, handmade journals. The pink one depicts "the Girl Who Knitted Love...[a] romantic girl who knits with her heart."  


I'm in awe - I want them all! Visit Fric de Mentol, here.

Love those embroidered pieces! They remind me of my friend Jordan's embroidery. I have a couple of her abstract embroidery pieces in my apartment, there's really nothing better than admiring a good friend's art all day long! She's on Etsy as Hide the Good Scissors, I'm not sure if she has anything for sale now or not!

Shoko said...

Kate, thank you for the recommendation! I looked up her shop and you're right, it's currently empty, but I added it to my favorites - can't wait to see her work! :)
