Follow Friday: Fiber Art and Kumihimo

What on earth is kumihimo and how do you eat it? Er… no, this is not some type of exotic food, but a Japanese craft. And why would it relate to quilting? Why for embellishing, of course!

Kumihimo is traditional Japanese braiding, where cords and ribbons are made by interlacing strands. At Tastykaeru, this crafty gal incorporates some lovely braiding into her fiber art, mixing fibers and adding beading and embroidery to her work, for some truly scrumptious results.

You will definitely want to take your time exploring this blog and be inspired by the ideas you will find here. I was particularly blown away by this really cool way in which she organizes her threads! Enjoy!
