Embroidery hasn’t changed all too much throughout centuries.

Brilio.net - Since the beginning of its journey in the Warring States period in China (500-300BC) and to Sweden's Migration period (300-700AD), though it’s still as elaborate now as it was, we could say that embroidery hasn’t changed all too much throughout centuries.

But it seems like the light of change is beginning to illuminating the world of needle-and-thread. While we used to see grandma knit edges of a tablecloth with elaborate designs of rose bouquets, these modern-day artists tried to bring the needle art to the next level. See how much these super-creative modern masters can treat the eyeballs:

1. 88-year-old granny knits a spectacular set of embroidered Temari spheres. Something we even couldn’t think of... The series was uploaded on Flicker by user NanaAkua, showing the excellent work of her grandma.
