I love her style. These are like little portraits…just missing the flesh.

Fabulous Cat Papers carries gorgeous handmade embroidered notebooks with all kinds of perfectly geeky themes (heavily focused on anatomy and science).

I’d having trouble choosing just one of these (and I have an odd habit of “saving” really nice notebooks and leaving them blank because they are are art pieces!).

Meredith Woolnough sews intricate leaves, coral and other forms found in nature on her sewing machine with a special fabric that dissolves in water, leaving only the gorgeously fragile skeleton of the design.

I love the way she mounts them on a crisp white background to show the subtle shadows.
