Alabama Chanin's books, Alabama Stitch and Alabama Studio Style are two of my favorite crafting books. Now she's video blogging. How can someone so knowledgeable be so adorable?! Go here to learn how to love your thread.
I am consistently inspired by the lovely images on Geninne's Art Blog and she posted a free embroidery pattern a couple weeks ago. I would love to make 7 different birds for each day of the week!
