Eek! These are 'sew' much better than mine! What talented students you have - tell them I am very impressed indeed!

Stunning examples of this week's IA challenge. Love the one using straws. I've seen that technique before, but had completely forgotten about it.

Great examples of how varied needlework can be! I love the little knitted ornament and your daughter's cardigan is adorable (as is your daughter)!

Wow! You are talented with all needles :)
I love the purse and I can never resist a baby, especially in a hand-knit sweater! That will be a keepsake. ♥

I love all the variety you've shown here- just beautiful! And your mixed media works are wonderful, a perfect combination of color, texture and whimsy- my fave is the one with the heart and rose; just beautiful!
