I will list these sites a bit later, but today on my daily visit I found an abundance of what? Needlepoint, of course! These are all vintage pieces, you know, the kind you sadly find in garage sales going for $5. But not here! These pieces, stitched lovingly, are priced with much more respect!

Sarah Corbet has her thing going on HERE
A whole bunch of different, fantastic street art HERE
