I've been happily stitching, but can't show you - yet!
I was happy to see the UPS man come today because he brought me this...
I haven't opened it yet because I'm saving it until I can sit down and have a delightful read. This book is by Sue Bleiweiss who I've followed online for some time. Along with her own blog HERE, she also runs the Sketchbook Challenge blog HERE. I have long been intimidated by sketchbooks because I didn't know quite what to do with one. Taking Karen's 'An Embroiderer's Ledger' online class has started me on what I hope will be a fruitful journey into sketchbook-ing.
This book has been talked about all over the 'net so I decided that I simply couldn't live without it any longer! Specs: 'The Sketchbook Challenge" (Techniques, Prompts, and Inspiration for Achieving Your Creative Goals) by Sue Bleiweiss. Published by Potter Craft, c 2012, ISBN 978-0-307-79655-4

About birds? Well, I just stumbled across some of the cutest little embroidered ones that Catherine Frere-Smith has done. Go HERE (scroll down to see her delightful little creations!).
And eyes? There's definitely embroidered 'eye' candy brooches at Sylvia's Windy River Beadwork and Embroidery site HERE.
