I love when the mailman arrives at the shop - it always means new goodies have arrived. Lookie, lookie:

Felt Me A Smile. OMG, this has to be one of the cutest books EVER. Oh my goodness, you HAVE to come in and take a look at all the cute felting projects.

From the publisher:

They use felting, embroidery, crochet, and fabric-painting techniques and are suitable for crafters of all levels and interests thanks to the step-by-step photographs, templates, and stitch-by-stitch instructions. Fans of today's popular Japanese crafts as well as animal-lovers everywhere, will find these ideas totally irresistible—from the twinkle-toed poodle baby booties to the adorable pair of hugging bears.
