Intriguing Instas : The Yellow Wallpaper
So, you’ll all know about my obsession with embroidery. And believe me, it’s only going to get stronger so if you’ve had enough, better to back off now.
For those of you still here, you’re in for a treat! I’ve been lurking around Instagram on the hunt for embroidery to get my creative juices flowing, and I landed upon The Yellow Wallpaper.
Exhibiting painfully gorgeous, macabre needlework inspired by gothic Victoriana, death customs & pagan traditions, The Yellow Wallpaper is one of those Instagram accounts which makes me glad I decided to stick around and not delete my account. I’m also there for all the fascinating things in-between the stitching…
Currently, I’m predicting how many hours work I’m going to be able to get done during the rest of the week since my discovery. My prediction is 0.
I’m also going to be putting away a few krona a week into The Yellow Wallpaper fund because Rebecca, the talent behind this glorious dark craft has a shop!
Which piece are you smitten with?
Thank you to everyone who bought one of my embroideries last night. 🙏🏻🙏🏻 The Kern Dolly is the only one left in the shop. A free dried wheat Kern doll will also be included with this piece. I also have 2 winter scenes (UFO and log cabin) hoops available which have been reduced to £20 so grab yourself a cosy tiny snowy scene 🖤
A popular belief about witches was that they could turn in to hares. One legend tells us of a man hunting a hare that escapes and seeks refuge in the home of an old lady reputed to have been a witch. Upon arriving to the house the man finds the alleged witch panting hard. This popular story inspired my witchy hare embroidery. It will be included in tomorrow nights mini shop update (7pm GMT)

Finished embroidered Pagan Year Wheel; depicting the 8 festivals of a pagan year. Set in an 8" wood effect flexi hoop. This will be for sale TOMORROW at 7PM (GMT) time. There is only one available so it'll be first come first serve. My apologies to anyone who wanted to buy it from the beginning. There's a lot of people interested in this piece and I wanted to be fair to everyone. • • • #pagan #paganyearwheel #wicca #witch #witchcraft #witchy #yule #samhain #mabon #lammas #midsummer #beltane #ostara #imbolc #autumn #allhallowseve #halloween #gothic #embroidery #embroideryartist #needlecraft #fibreart #handembroidery #theyellowwallpaper
