Storybook Wood Embroidery

I recently finished this commission for a cool lady and her husband in Minneapolis; it’s a few pages from the children’s book “I Love You” by Sandol Stoddard Warburg, illustrations by Jacqueline Chwast. They read pages from it at their wedding and she wanted the pages stitched for their anniversary. So sweet! So lovely!

The pages are stitched onto 8″x10″ wood panels. I really loved doing the stitching for these. I think I may have developed a new addiction: stitching children’s book illustrations.
