In case you missed last week’s news about Wasabi Chan - a cute, tiny kitten who
was attacked by a crow. Below are the crocheted costumes the owners’ grandmother
made for Wasabi Chan to aid in her recovery. This takes cuteness to a whole new level!

I love the idea of using tapestry headboards. What a great way of introducing
color and texture into your bedroom. Here are a few of my favorite examples:

Meg Callahan takes quilting to an artistic level with these
beautiful geometric patterned quilts. I am more inclined
to put these on a wall than on a bed.
Loving the embroidered and felted bug art of Claire Moynihan.
Embroidered bugs, snails and butterflies are displayed on felted balls
inside traditional entomological boxes.
Inspired by the craft of various cultures, Swedish designers
Glimpt create amazing objects in collaboration with the local
artisans they meet worldwide. Below are lamps from South
Africa, coffee tables from Peru and stools and poofs from

collection! Click on this link before June 15th for a chance to win one of these
amazing hand embroidered speakers.
Su Ami are a craft collective of five family members living in
Vietnam. Their hand crocheted mini amigurumi are truly remarkable.
Most measure 1/2″ and some are even smaller! Be sure to check out their

Felted animal portraits by Ameila Santiago. I love how life-like these
dog sculptures are. Amelia is also a painter, printmaker as well as a
fiber artist. Though most of her commissions are dogs, be sure to
check out her other felted animals.
I first discovered her on Etsy years back and this is where you can
now find her paintings and prints.
Coming soon is Billy Grrrl my updated website and re-designed blog.
In the meantime you can “like” the Billy Grrrl facebook page. I will still
be posting about art & design that incorporate thread as well as photography.
