Needlecrafts aka needleart

Embroidery, cross stitch, tapestry, whatever you call it...I quite like things that involve a needle and some kind of thread. You might have seen the gloves I embroider and the vintage embroidered brooches in my shop. I'm currently working on a surprise embroidery for my beloved and some ideas for winter and I thought you might like to see a few pieces of work that inspire me:

Fresh battery's vagina art is wonderful.

Cute birdie brooch (we did some similar ones with Rayna from Radical Cross Stitch at Craftea Chat last year)

Jared Brown's work is just amazing! You can see more of it here

I love this hand towels from Chez Sucre Chez

Cute mushroom from Wall work

And this beloved book I could resist buying on ebay! It rocks!
