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.
