🎙️ Meet the couple recreating Paris with embroidery

Here come Elin and Charles, a Swedish/French couple taking a new look at Paris via the medium of embroidery.

We talked about their workshops, their embroidery, and a new language I invented.

Check out their work at Le Kadre via this link, and scroll down for a quick look.

And hang around at the end of the episode for a story from Corey (A French Frye in Paris) – amazingly linked to embroidery too. Quite spooky too, if you ask me.

Happy embroidering!

🌞🌻 New Project! 🌻🌞 Lately I've been reflecting a lot on what subject to dedicate a part of my embroidery journey to. Following up on my article "Simplicity is the key to happiness", I think we can make great improvements in a craft if we focus our energy to perfect one skill before moving on to the next one. I have always loved the beauty of fireworks. But I know that it's not the most environmentally friendly activity (and can even be dangerous considering current developments…), so I figured that producing embroidery fireworks is a perfect way to capture the pretty light and colours in a sustainable way! You will be able to combine the fireworks of your choice and have them explode your wall with brightness. Here is the first piece, which is still a #workinprogress next to our famous friend #toureiffel #lekadre
