The delicate embroidery art of Meredith Woolnough, an artist hailing from Australia, will astound and delight. This form of art might be known for its delicacy, yet it is taken to the next level by this talented woman. Mimicking nature, thread is weaved into fall foliage and more in a beautiful attempt to mimic nature.

In fact, people might mistake the delicate embroidery art for real leaves and coral formations. Woolnough states, "I have been collecting skeletonized leaves for as long as I can remember." So it is only natural that the delicate embroidery art would pass for authentic objects of nature. Her work is created using a special sewing machine and a base cloth that dissolves.
