I spend a lot of time looking for new places to put needlepoint, new ways to utiize our designs which we spend so much time working on. It's tough: we don't want it to get dirty, dusty, or roughed up. But when your walls are full, and you still want to stitch--what's a girl to do?

Well, I have just come across the work of Lithuanian artist Severija Incirauskaite-Kriauneviciene. This is truly one cool approach to cross stitch! Objects, no matter the material, are beautifully worked: a car door, an old rusty pail, a frying pan. Take a look:

She refers to her work as extractions of the "banal and simple" and puts it into a "syrupy" kitsch context: our everday objects transformed.

I don't know about all that, but I do know it makes me think that I have not yet tapped the boundaries of what we do. I wonder if Reid would mind if I "transformed" our SUV.....
