Retro Craft Corner: Stencil Graffiti Style Embroidery

I went to visit local textile artist and fellow Brit, Karen Jane Russell, for my very unamerican nescafe coffee fix, and maybe come away with a few glittery sparkles (she always has glitter around the place), but instead I left with sparkles in my eyes. She kindly loaned me 2 bags of her vintage craft mags from the 60's and 70's.
I drool!
