I don’t know if it’s the cold weather or just my love of fabric and embroidery, but I’ve been spending an awful lot of time buried under blankets on my couch reading the most recent Land of Nod catalog. I don’t have a little one on the way any time soon, but I still read their catalog every month because it celebrates a handmade artist I love in a way that feels fresh and modern. Last month’s catalog has a simply breathtaking cover, which was created by the Australian twin sisters of maricor/maricar. After tweeting about my love for the cover, the Land of Nod team directed me to their post about the cover process (I love behind-the-scenes process posts!), and I was hooked. maricor/maricar does the most beautiful hand embroidery, from stunning statement pieces like the LON cover to smaller private commissions like the “Sweater Letters” below. I wouldn’t mind snagging that “G” sweater letter; it seems very winter appropriate. You can check out more of maricor/maricar’s work online right here. I dare you not to want at least one of their designs (especially the “be excellent” piece). xo, grace
