During Christmas I had some extra time to stroll around at Pinterest and I found something really beautiful that I want to share with you; the fiber art of Hillary Fayle. Her work is innovatory, refreshing and refined. We all know embroidery, but this is embroidery of the twenty-first century! Hillary tries to use renewable, sustainable and environmentally friendly materials for her art. Embroidering leaves is a logical consequence of this aspiration.
To protect the leaves during the process, they are coated in a non-toxic preservative. The embroidery is a mixture of traditional patterns and techniques and her own design. She also cuts out designs in the leaves, which give them a refined lacy look.
