    Toffee Apple Thread Painting

    Thread painting is an embroidery technique that is equivalent to painting a picture and using embroidery thread as the medium. And Chloe Amy Avery does that with a style that is so beautifully unique. Her embroideries (typically of foods) have an impressionistic quality, as the stitches take on the appearance of brushstrokes. 

    But not only does she create large embroidered designs, Chloe also works in miniatures, stitching tiny designs that fit inside a bottle cap!
