I've been thinking about my favourite finds in 2010 and did intend to compile a 'best of'. However, I have discovered so many wonderful artists and beautiful things that it would be a shame to have to choose just a few. I have been 'revisiting' some of the artists and crafters I featured earlier on in the year and I'm forever inspired by their imagination and creativity. One such example is Bristol-based textile artist Penny Leaver Green whose work I featured just over a year ago.
I have already drawn your attention to her fairytale "into the woods" series, which I love, so today I would like to highlight her handembroidered nursery rhyme quilt.
Have you ever seen such beautiful children's bedding I wonder? A true work of art, which you can study in more detail here and here. What a wonderful present for a child, to be passed down from generation to generation.
Penny Leaver Green, somebody I'd love to meet, and one of my personal faves.
