Every once in awhile I get excited about a designer. This one is new (well… new to me…). Shows insight into another world… almost. Her designs are so playful and colorful.
Here are a list of blogs and articles on her…
De Borduurvrouw Workshop: http://deborduurvrouw.blogspot.com/2013/10/workshop-geertje-westra.html
Geertje Westra in Goes, at the museum De Bevelanden. .. Her work is so inspiring. This one is my favorite. Haunting, yet if you look closely, it has a wealth of stitches and techniques imaginable. http://www.zeelandnet.nl/…/12…/Borduren_maar_dan_anders.html

This is Ferdinand, a now deceased drifter, from the city of Groningen. Geertje was so impressed by his life and has made an embroidery.
