happy birthday, felt mistress!

I'm terrible about remembering birthdays and almost never get around to making cards, but here's a rare one for the legend that is Felt Mistress, aka Louise Evans:

I'm constantly inspired by the work that she and her husband, Jonathan Edwards/Jontofski, get up to in North Wales. She sews amazing creatures, he does incredible watercolour paintings, and a lot of their work is collaborative (he draws the monsters, she sews them, etc). It's wonderful to see how patient they are with each other, and interested in each other's work. Do go check out what they're doing, it's the best thing on the Internet right now. And if you don't have a copy of their book Creature Couture, pick one up right away.
