The Earth in embroidery

I hadn’t planned on posting today, but I wanted to do a very quick post to show you these lovely embroideries by 21-year old artist Victoria Rose Richards.  These are taken from a pictorial article in the Guardian from a few days ago, which you can find here.  Aren’t they beautiful?

I find her work stunning.  I also think, in this time of physical distancing and upheaval, it is soul-soothing to be reminded how beautfiul our earth is.

  1. Kelly, Richards’s work is wonderful – thank you for introducing it to me! I’m falling behind on the Guardian’s picture galleries, so more browsing is in order now.

  2. Delightful. Thank you for all the posts. I have cast on my Form in the glorious red, inspired by you. Got side tracked knitting bunny egg cosies, rainbows and a Daisy cardigan for a baby Daisy but I plan to get back to it.
