I often feel that the world needs more fun and whimsy. I know that I do, which is why I find the work of embroiderer Linda Miller so appealing. Her naive and humourous embroideries are always filled with smiling people or happy animals or events.
Just looking at them lifts my spirits and makes me smile.
She is also the author of the book Creative Machine Embroidery
If you like machine embroidery, or just need a smile, go take a look at her work.
