A marvellous mini!

Not this 



Nor this





But this





My lovely Artist Trading card which arrived yesterday from Nati.   Nati is from Argentina but living in Luxembourg!  She is one crafty lady and takes beautiful photos for her blog - go have a look!


Back to the ATC this is Nati's artistic take on the japanese art of Sashiko!

Her stitching is tiny - I mean elf like!  But I don't think she is one!

Thank you so much Nati - I appreciate all the tiny stitches in this "Doodle Stitchery".  I'd have a go at this on the machine but doing it by hand?  I think I'll be leaving that to you!

Thanks also of course to Ali our verryberryhandmade swap mama!  If you fancy joining in next round - I would recommend it! - then keep an eye open.



And talk about joining in I made these for the Zakka along using the lovely Ayumi's book Patchwork Please ....



Hey you must have heard about this - unless you were asleep under a rock?  

Ok you were, but wake up and have a look here to see how some very clever people have used this pattern - so quick, so easy - thank you Ayumi you have not disappointed!





I was going to combine these with a few felt pages into a needlebook but you know what?   I am rather taken with them as they are!
