Giant cross-stitches have been an obsession of ours for a while now. Kate has been dreaming up projects we could do that play with scale in a bigger way, so we were thrilled to see these pieces from artist and art director Jessica Decker in Detroit. Jessica creates large-scale cross-stitches (she showcased one in a previous Before & After) on colored canvas using a variety of yarns. I love how large these pieces are and the big role that the yarn’s texture plays when you scale things up like this. Jessica does custom work and creates pre-made pieces, both of which you can check out online right here. Thanks to Jessica for sharing these with us and to photographer Cybelle Codish for sharing these photos. xo, grace
