A Talented Trio.

I recently ordered two wonderful sketches on antique doilies from Michelle Palmer.  Do you know that feeling when something is so beautiful you can scarcely breathe....
... so divine it takes your breath away...well that's how I felt when I opened the parcel.
What amazes me is that they are original works of art and I get to keep them or in this case make them into gifts for dear family members.  Thank you so much dear Michelle for sharing your amazing talent with us all.
On the subject of super talented people we are so lucky that the next instalment of Jenny's Stitchery Club is now available.
I've been looking at the previews of these designs on Jenny's wonderful blog, Elefantz, and getting more and more excited about stitching them.
And now I can.  One of the extra wonderful things about Jenny's gorgeous designs is that she keeps them affordable for everyone.  You can buy them HERE. Thank you so much Jenny.

And more...
Yesterday I shared my gift of a beautiful bear drawing from my dear friend, Michelle Ridgeway.  Michelle's range of charming designs and patterns grows every year and everything is wonderful.  These are the latest two I'm ordering for my pattern stash.
Thought I'd show them to you just in case you wanted to give yourself a little gift for Christmas. Again Michelle's patterns are very affordable and brilliant value for money.  Pop over HERE if you would like to order them.
And if that is not enough adorableness in one post, I have more to share.
I have just discovered The Homemakery
No wonder I have no time for housework, I spent absolutely ages reading Kate May's beautiful blog and exploring her on-line shop.  There is so much to fall in love with including some brilliant tutorials like this one HERE which will explain and show how to make your very own Earring Hoopla.
Thank you so much Kate for sharing your darling creativity with us.
I'm off to spend the morning with my sweet NOTYQ friends - lucky me.
Hope you have time for some stitching too,
