Underneath each of artist  Ulla Stina Wikander 's needlepoint objects is a real, once-functioning appliance, accessory, or tool. Wikander ( previously ) tends to select objects with traditional associations to domestic life, like sewing machines, ironing boards, and hair dryers. The artist, who is based in Switzerland, combines the retired objects with historical cross-stitch patterns, which she also collects. Each piece is finished with colorful rick-rack detailing to help define the edges and describe the original shape. Wikander recently updated her website with many new works, and you can also follow her on Instagram . (via Cross Connect )
