A Stitch in Time

Like many nonyas of their generation, both my grannies were good in embroidery as well as sewing and made their own kebayas themselves. Mum wasn't keen on it and was more interested in cross stitch so I grew up watching her sitting there regularly with her needle in her hand deftly stitching out colourful pictures.

This amazing cross stitch ad brought back many memories. Georg Jensen commissioned artist Inge Jacobsen to cross-stitch 8 sensational pieces of art for the autumn/winter 2011-12 based on catwalk queen Freja Beha Erichsen.
