The Amazing Mr. Finch

Oh, Mr. Finch.  How do I love thee?  There are so, so many ways...
...for the meticulously hand-sewn gills on the undersides of your mushrooms...
...for your dead-gorgeous spider with crooked legs of wire and teeny shell-buttoned posterior...
...for your sweetly macabre hand-painted trophy-mount rabbit torsos...
...for your way with the creepy and crawly, making it so utterly frighteningly lovely...
...for your hand-sized moths stitched from odd bits of upholstery and velvet...
...for your barn owl under a glass cloche with black kohl eyes...
...and for your beautiful vintage tapestry, rainy-water-stained butterflies (and your artful ways with a photo prop)...

These are but a few of the creatures the genius Mr. Finch brings into being from his self-described "rainy fairy-tale mind."  Mr. Finch is a British textile-artist, who stitches away to the sound of rain, in the companionship of his cats, whilst drinking cups of tea.  I wish I could find a corner of his studio in which to crouch and watch him stitch away for all the hours of a gray and dreamy afternoon.

You can see more of Mr. Finch's creations here, learn more about him and his creations at his blog, and peruse his fantastic creations (or buy your own!) in his Etsy shop.  Enjoy!
