Last week on Art With a Needle
After I wrote about my daily calligraphy, Helen sent a link to some beautiful embroidery by Olga Kovalenko, who starts with a calligraphed word and then executes it in stitching.

The work is great -- I would be happy if I could simply do the calligraphy, let alone translate it into stitching!!
Here's my favorite miniature of the week, beads made from air-drying clay, colored with whatever ink was left in the pen after several days of calligraphy:
