There’s something about the juxtaposition of delicate embroidery paired with curses that continues to amuse me, time after time, every time I catch a glimpse. Below is a selection of completed ones and works in progress. (There’s definitely more where this came from!) And of course, I’m always up for commissions. Hey, if I can spread the joy… 😉
