I was in a pout-rific mood today. I actually contemplated complaining about a few cyber space related grievances in the form of a blog post here for the very first time. Yeah, subversive and morose would best have described my mood today. I was on the verge of said “complaint” post when I clicked a particular link on twitter from a person whose links I absolutely love. She’s an artist and she never ceases to amaze me with her creativity.
And so I said to myself, “Self, why not use your blogging super powers for good instead of evil today?” and my self agreed.
So, instead of subversiveness, today we are talking fiber art beauty.
I mean it when I say that I am nothing short of delighted by this artist’s work. In my book, her creativity and skill for creating handmade wearable art are unsurpassed. The lovely girl of whom I speak is the artist behind Fringe.
In her words,
Fringe is a crossroad of old & new, proper & defiant. Handmade wearable fiber art.
My love for yarn and design are intertwined. Together they weave a story that I then write with my knitting needles and crochet hooks.
*sigh* Even the way she speaks about her work is dreamy…….
Dying of suspense to see some of said crocheted & knitted masterpieces?
Stunning, right? So much beauty and care, not only in the pieces, but in their titles and presentation as well. I love how she describes her work as “Proper and Defiant.” As I look at the pieces above that is EXACTLY the place in which they live…….partway between proper and defiant. Amazing.
The Cloudburst brooch and the Twist of Fate Cowl are two of my very favorite pieces. How about you?
