Hi, I'm floresita, editor of Feeling Stitchy. I'm an avid stitcher, knitter, and crafter. You can see more of my stitching on my blog, and find my vintage transfer collection at Vintage Transfer Finds.

Feel free to email me with any ideas for the blog!


  1. Good grief! How do you choose one out of all those? Brilliant.... absolutely brilliant. Toddling off to vote. I have a definite favourite, but I don't think it's the best stitching.

    Amazing talent from everyone participating.

  2. I had such a difficult time deciding between these gorgeous pieces that I can't even tell you right now which I voted for.

    They would all get my vote if I could.

  3. Yep, I voted and boy was it hard to choose.

  4. Such awesome entries! Mine is the Still Life With Woodpecker one, anf i am now realizing how lame my pictures look compared to everyone elses! Man, i have to work on my photography skills big time!
