The character’s faces are painted on wooden beads.
I include beads, shells and other found objects in the fabric relief scenes.
I hand sew every stitch in every illustration.
Some characters in the book have hats made of acorn caps.
I use plant dyed wool felt and multicolored threads to make the pictures.
I like using driftwood to make house roofs and furniture.
From School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1–The epitome of warm and fuzzy, this collection is illustrated with embroidered fabric pictures that have been embellished with small objects like buttons, bells, shells, and bits of driftwood. Some of the items, like Mary's little white lambs, are crocheted, and many of the people appear to have heads made of smooth, round dowels. Old verses like "Elsie Marley" and "Simple Simon" are given a new freshness with this interpretation. With no white space, and familiar text laid out simply, the pictures definitely take center stage. Young children love visual detail and this book will engage and delight. The characters don't look very expressive, but the soft colors and graceful lines are attractive and appealing. An unusual and charming addition to nursery-rhyme shelves.Lauralyn Persson, Wilmette Public Library, IL

My 3 year old was instantly fascinated by this book.
The visual details are simply beautiful, and the nursery rhymes are really great, some more obscure ones which I hadn't heard before.
The only improvement would be to make the binding more durable, and the pages a bit thicker (they are too thin for little kids use). We have already gone through one copy (it didn't hold up to the daily use of our 3 yr old as it was much loved for over a year and started falling apart). That is fine though, we just happily purchased a second copy that will hopefully last a few more years.
