July 1st is Canada Day!
To celebrate, I thought it’d be fun to showcase the magnificently stitched maple leaf artistry of American artisan Hillary Fayle. Every single piece of Hillary’s suspended embroidery work is spectacular!!! But if I had to choose a favourite, it’d be her red maple leaf
… since y’ know, I am Canadian!
Take a moment to browse her website… You’ll be glad you did :) Can you pick a favourite?
That’s all for now… Wishing eveyone a happy, safe and fun Canada Day! As well, wishing a happy 4th of July to Hillary Fayle and all our American neighbours visiting my blog today!
Peace to all! ♥ Jackie

My name is Hillary and this is my art. I am all about creating beautiful things carefully and with regard for the planet. I try to use environmentally friendly and sustainable materials for my art, which has really defined what I do as an artist. Currently I am working with leaves as a primary material, which I coat in a non-toxic preservative and either cut them or stitch them to create delicate patterns which reflect the beauty of the natural world. Enjoy!
