Mister Bob Brian, a dark tribute to the great paper cutter himself, is just absolutely wonderful.

The quilt made by gangs

Marvellous work by Katarina Thorsen, an art therapist who worked with rival gangs in Vancouver. They created this quilt together using painting, sketching and hand sewing, and the one rule is that nothing was censored.

She’s selling it to raise funds for Operation Sock Monkey.

Oh how I’d love to buy it.

Jordan to venture into the world of craft? Holy shit.

According to Heat, she spent her 35th birthday sewing pinnies.

So it’s not crazy to suggest she might do a haberdashery line, right. KP Equestrian is a real thing, y’know.

Nicola Horlick: when on earth does she have time to sew?

The uber-business woman admits to the Daily Mail that she loves it. Fair – it’s an amazing de-stressor – but, still. She’s got FIVE kids and a MEGA job. I write about this kind of thing, and still rarely get the time to make.

I’m glad she does though.

Knit yourself a boyfriend.

Yes, ladies and gents, if you so wanted (and had the skills and patience of artist Noortje de Keijzer), you too could knit yourself a bloke (via incrediblethings.com).
