Craftwork

This beautiful installation, is right here in our town!

patria 2patriaCross stitched screens by Laura Carwardine adorn the walls of the restaurant Patria on King St. West in Toronto. You can see a video of the artist at work right here. You may even get inspired to do something like this your own self, or perhaps you will  just want to make a pilgrimage to the restaurant.  I hear they have tapas!

The press on this amazing project sites the 485 hours and the 17,000 stitches involved.  Who was counting? That’s what I want to know.

Craftily yours
