Smiling croc shoes made by SIT Noir with Rob and Erik Hillenbrink. They call these "Killer Heels." I think the killer part is the high skinny heels more than all those teeth. Not made from animals, just inspired by them.

This modern quilted table runner by TwistedSticks from Neshkoro, Wisconsin is so bright and cheerful. It measures 36.5" x 24." I think this design would look great made up as a full size quilt too.

This pretty Christmas table runner was made by Celeste from The Little Quilt Shoppe in Alabama. It measures 15 1/2" square. I love the little bird in the center, and the photo with the white vignette is beautiful.
Nice work, Celeste!

This amazing chair was made from empty spools of thread!
As you remember, we're saving our empties in 2013 just to see how much thread we use, year-to-year. We're going to share our numbers here on the Selvage Blog at year-end, then I'll report to Diane Harris of Quiltmaker Magazine. She'll be writing about this in January.
Here are more ways to upcycle spools.
A garland by Crafty Staci (including a tutorial):
A nice heart arrangement by Jess from New York at Epheriell Designs.
A wreath from Amy's Rag Bag:
And finally, a garland with buttons and fabrics from Karen in Rhode Island at Sew Many Ways.

Everyone knows Angela Walters' gorgeous machine quilting, but I just had to feature this photo of her work. You can see more about it on her site: Quilting is My Therapy. She said she turned up the music and really enjoyed doing this quilting. Look how small her designs are. I'd love to be able to do this. Maybe it will be my New Year's resolution to give it a try. I'm just thinking.

I found a great collection of bears and bunnies from Russia at: Anna Pavlovna on Etsy. Anna and Kate make all the stuffed toys by hand. They even sell patterns.
I like the embroidery on these little fellows. Nice job, Anna and Kate!

Ann Brauer of Massachusetts wrote an interesting post about designing the quilt above, "Autumn Dawn." She includes photos of the quilt while in progress. Her blog is called The Quilts of Ann Brauer.
See more of her quilts here. Nice work, Ann!
