The girls and I spent a long time admiring each stitch on each page in this adorable new book yesterday:

Pocketful of Posies: A Treasury of Nursery Rhymes, by Salley Mavor, 2010 Houghton Mifflin Books for Children

The entire book was stitched and photographed, and it is one delightful page after another! Enjoy the amazon page as it offers many inside views plus a lot of interesting photos on the making of the book, posted by the author!

Several years ago, we bought "Felt Wee Folk" with elaborate directions on how to make the dolls. My daughters have several bins of materials, and have developed their own style of making the dolls. It's a very satisfying craft to do, and they love to give their handiwork as gifts.
I did not know she also had "illustrated" books, and I've got several of them on hold at the library. Thanks for the great review!

Nancy, I went to her site and I think those are no longer available... I just love her stuff!
