pretty little thieves! i've always admired nancy's works of dreamy ink and watercolor paintings and illustrations. she has a wonderful art shop and has recently been featured in frankie magazine for her magnificent cat plates.
inside the beautiful wrapping, i now own "the yarn animal book" by caroline m. staples published in 1976 by simon and schuster. nancy had seen little lenny that i made from a vintage pattern and thought that i might enjoy this book of vintage animal patterns.
i also found out that nancy has opened a cool new vintage shop called field and ramble
and that she only lives a few miles away from me!! we're definitely going to hang out and do some art and thrifting.
