Ulla Stina Wikander is a very inspired cross stitch artist. My Modern Met has done an article on her which shows the extend to which she is inspired and takes cross stitch to a new level. . She takes obsolete objects and dresses them in cross stitch designs so they become pieces of art. The time, patience and thinking which has gone into these objects is undeniable. To do each would would take so much thought, patience and then the hours of stitching. To get the canvases/cloth to fit the contours of the objects so neatly would require a lot of skill. Her work is truly amazing. Cross stitching has existed for centuries in different cultures. It is good to see it taking a strong place in the new millennium.
