I Spy: Embroidered Stains

By Elvis Robertson
Whilst wandering the interwebs I came across this amazing project. That isn't an incredibly dirty table cloth in the above photo. Those are embroidered stains. I know. Amazing right?

Here's a close up of a different but similar piece of work:

This is all the work of Elvis Robertson. I found his/her (?) work on the blog lovely textiles. Sadly it seems this is no longer an active site as it hasn't been updated since last year. This may be due in a large part to the fact that the artist has a new commercial website here. Wonderful work though. I'm going to have to read through the blog's whole archive I think. It looks well worth a flick.


  1. Hello there. Thanks so much for your kind words! I'm afraid I just don't find time to blog as much as I'd like any more. Sometimes I pop on there... and sometimes I do a tweet here and there and as you say, I update my commercial website. And Pinterest. It's all quite a lot to juggle with a heavy workload! Thank you so much for your post about me. I will now look forward to reading through your blog.

    1. Hi Elvis,

      Thanks so much for commentating. I'm excited to hear you are still running the blog (man these things take up time, I know)and I'll be back there to have a peek at what you're upto. I really really love your work. It's beautiful.
