These beautiful embroidery pieces were created by Emily - a self confessed stitchaholic! To see more of her work you can visit her at The Flossbox, she has a lot of patterns, tutes and tips for embroidery and cross stitch.

Narelle from Ruby Victoria Letterpress is one of the reasons I recently bought a set of lino cutting tools and equipment, I just love her work. And I love the unique quality of a linoprint.
Narelle has an Etsy shop and can be found at markets if you're in Tassie.

What can I say about these, possibly the most awesome pieces of wearable art I've ever seen!
Lisa from Lil Fish Studios is my kind of artist. She crafts objects of beauty that are functional. She firstly needlefelts and embroiders her brooches, then she searches her own property for exactly the right mount for each artwork.





The base may be made of wood, a shell, even antler. She handcrafts the base with a saw, drill and sanding.






Inspiring works from lovely ladies, thank you all for sharing your crafts with us :)

Just a reminder that my Christmas giveaway is still running so get in while you still can!

You're so kind! Thanks so much for sharing my work here.

I am kind of, no, totally in love with that squirrel. And those mushroom bookplates. And... beautiful stuff, all of it.
