I kept noticing this "T" everywhere, and then I found it!

   Artist Jacob Magraw-Mickelson set aside his paints and took up a needle.

In a recent interview with the NY Times (it's no coincidence that this is their signature "T"), Magraw says he was drawn to embroidery by "the layers of intention that can gather in such a slow process". This really spoke to me, as a fiber artist. The idea of layered intention is really everything that needlepoint is about. He goes on to talk about how we interact with stitching every day, in "mundane but essential ways..." This T of his is starting to pop up on Pintrest and Facebook---and I am sure we will be seeing more of this artists work in future!
