What inspires you? Have you ever been struck by a piece of art, floor tiles, concrete patterns, wallpaper, carpet? I’m frequently asked what inspires me to design, so I’m sharing this – THIS inspires me to design.

I saw this wall art at the local Thai restaurant. Every time we go in, I can hardly look at the menu for staring at this particular dimensional piece. And of course, the next question is how to translate this to needlework?

I have also recently encountered some intriguing materials:


From DMC, stitchable cork and mesh.

edmar-threadsShiny rayon threads in several weights from Edmar.

kreinik-copper-meshAnd finally, Kreinik copper mesh.

Now the inspiration needs to turn into perspiration! How to combine all these materials into an intriguing, dimensional needle art?

Stay tuned!
