Talented young embroiderer Aubrey Longley-Cook (who turns 24 tomorrow.. Happy Birthday Aubrey!) writes a blog from Atlanta, Georgia named Spool Spectrum on which he posts his own handiwork along with some fabulous textile work from other artists and some kitschy finds.

A self-proclaimed fan of cartoons, animation, cassettes and mix tapes, he is bringing embroidery a long way from its stereotype as a Granny craft.

He also sells some of his unique embroidery, each framed in a wood hoop, in a store of the same name as his blog on etsy.

Check out his blog, Spool Spectrum and his etsy store. I, for one, look forward to seeing more of his work.
