Over 50 links for Stitching paper (tutotials & examples)

Poinsettias from Melanie's A Year of Flowers (Stamped & Stitched)

Hi All, I'm hoping your holidays have been wonderful. We've been snowed in (bad tires and loads of snow for Vancouver) and dealing with power outages, but we had a very merry (if quiet) Christmas anyhow. I enjoyed honouring Hanukkah as well by watching old faves Yentel & Fiddler on the Roof.

Sorry for such irregular posts; I'm still feeling so ICK, but I am packing up & looking forward to relief (and some stamping & blurfing!!!) very soon. Until then,
some links on what is shaping up to be my all-time favourite things to do:
