Pretty stitches

Perusing the submissions in my flicker groups this morning and in the Text stitch and paint group I found something new to love, these amazing needle cases.
Made from vintage envelopes that have been collaged with found ephemera, copied onto linen then embroidered with pretty stitches and vintage buttons. They are made by Hens teeth art and are for sale over at Etsy. Follow more of this lovely work and process at the Hens teeth art Blog and Flickr page. Hope you are all enjoying this new week. My last couple of days in the bar and off to start another new proper job on Monday.
