Things I Love Thursday

I love the work of Michelle Kingdom. (click to link)  I found her on Flickr.  I can't stop loving her work.

In fact, I adore her embroideries so much, that one day... I asked her if I could be in one of them.  Her work is like out of a dream: quirky, sometimes quite strange, incredibly intriguing, intricate, and exceptionally creative.  I honestly don't know how she does it.

She said yes.

And then she began to sketch.  And then she began to stitch.

Ever since I made that Prairie Dress, I have wanted a picture of me in a field of prairie flowers.  I never thought about having it embroidered!

I LOVE - ADORE - CHERISH IT, and will forever.  Michelle Kingdom - you are a star *

HAPPY THURSDAY - I am in heaven!
