20 Nature-Inspired Embroidery to Melt Away the Winter Blues

As the holly jolly holidays have long past and we find ourselves in the middle of January, it's natural to long for an escape from the dreary conditions winter brings—freezing temperatures, barren trees, and gloomy skies. While it may feel like March is a million months away, art is always a savior you can turn to for emotion refuge. In this case, you can spring forward with a cheerful collection of nature-inspired embroidery to melt away the winter blues.

From lush foliage and blossoming blooms to cute and cuddly creatures, embroidery has a way of incorporating bright colors and gorgeous designs to remind us that there are better days ahead. Attention to intricate detail and the employment of inventive canvases—including anything from the standard embroidery hoop to tennis raquets and building façades—showcase each artist's striking level of skill and exhibits the delicate yet bold nature of the handicraft.

Now, you can sit back, relax, and take a break from bleak January with this bright and blooming list of embroidered art.
