** Terrific Tuesday ** Karen Ruane

Love her embroidery in paper.

These little coloured works.

Her worked is very delicate and she has really a passion for embroidery !
It was difficult to choose between pictures of her works.
She has already made many and all wonderful.

This is one of her embroidery books.

Love her patience,delicacy in her work,she has an absolute passion for embroidery!

She studied embroidery to Degree level at University.
Inspired by mothers and how they use cloth to protect and shelter their children.
White,much present in her work,symbolises the purity in the relationship between mother and child.

It is such a treasure to read in her blog, her new ideas and how they develop, you can feel excitement if she is
going into that new idea.

 "For centuries women have used cloth as a tool of comfort and as an expression of beauty within their homes. Creating cloth for warmth, cloth for shelter, our female predecessors embellished these linens with hand stitich using laborious and time consuming techniques thereby enhancing the functional beauty of objects which enveloped and protected their families. Inspired by these women I hope my creations pay tribute to and recognise the devotion expressed in cloth by our female ancestors."
''the use of traditional often time consuming process alludes to the devotion of a mother'', said Karen.
You have to visit her blog because I couldn't show all and there is so much beautiful handmade embroidery in there!
