Kitchen








Modern yet nostalgic. Discreet but eye-catching. Graphic but quiet. This is how I envisioned my first kitchen collection based on the idea of drawing cross-stitch motifs on fabric with embroidery floss just as you would with a pen on grid paper. I like to think that these tea towels, aprons and potholders are not finished yet and anyone can continue embroidering them.

They are now at my shop http://shop.karenbarbe.com/

Moderno pero a la vez nostálgico. Discreto pero también llamativo. Gráfico pero suave. Así es como imaginé mi primera colección para la cocina inspirada en la idea de dibujar motivos de punto de cruz sobre tela con hilo de bordar tal como se haría con lápiz en papel cuadriculado. Me gusta la idea de que estos paños de cocina, delantales y tomaollas no están terminados aún y que cualquiera puede seguir bordándolos.

Ya están en la tienda http://shop.karenbarbe.com/

Son maravillosos!

En este momento yo me hago mis propios paños de cocina y mandiles, reutilizando telas que tengo por casa. Pero si los comprase, me encantarían los tuyos...

What a wonderful collection! I love the concept behind it and that the owner can continue on ... personally, I think I would frame these in my kitchen, so beautiful to admire.

I taught this craft that is called Chicken Scratch on gingham fabric in the 1970's.

A good site to see what I mean:

Love the fact that you don't ruin your eyes on counting threads but just use the graphics. Very classy!

ALL of you – I'm so happy to read your comments (though a bit sad that some of them are still missing after last week's Blogger blackout.)

Bonnie – Thanks for the link!
