London-based artist, Anna Wiscombe, is inspired by the Dorset countryside in which she grew up. She handcrafts all of her home decor and jewelry products from sustainable sourced wood. You can purchase some of her designs in her UK Etsy shop located here.

Totally amazed by these machine embroidered landscapes and seascapes created by British textile artist, Alison Holt. Her process of painting in stitches is as follows: ‘Each piece is a combination of silk painting and stitch. The painting creates depth, perspective and richness to the work and combines effectively with stitch to give detail and texture.’
and her artist statement:
‘I aim to make a connection with people through my work, to transport them to a place and a moment in time. I am inspired by the detail in nature, the patterns, rhythms and textures. I want to create an emotional response in the viewer to the landscape that is important to me.’

We’ve made a few banners (buntings) for some family gatherings but I’m thinking this might be my next DIY project. Found this design on the Japanese handmade site, Creema, and sold under the shop name, Ringolin. Pleased that the banner has both form and function with those great “hanging pockets” that can be filled with goodies.
