personally, to me it seems that lots of urban knits look like lots of time wasting, but i should admit it makes me smile and some of them are truly outstanding. here and here are more.

so today it was first time when i found something really interesting in dallas art fest. i really really liked flora zarate’s artwork which is based on an old folk textile technique called arpilleras. its applequed tapestry with three dimensional elements and embroidery. unfortunately the picture looks way far away from her artwork in reality, but i hope you still can see how detailed, neat and pretty it is.
the only thing i could think about how long did it take to make it and how much yarn she had used. amazing. via from scandinavia with love.
