If this week's post on Thread Sketching/Free Hand Embroidery were an ice cream sundae, then today's Funky Find would be the cherry on top! I came across this talented lady last year and I couldn't believe what she can do with a needle and thread.
Her name is Carolyn Crump and she's a fiber artist (one of my new favorite terms) who lives in Houston, Texas. She goes a step further from Thread Sketching to actual Thread Painting which as you can see is amazing and takes some serious talent. She uses quilts as her canvas of choice. These are two of my favorite pieces. And yes, these are quilts!

Carolyn also creates abstract artwork and sculptures. Check out her awesomeness here.
