If you're looking for a knit-tastic birthday card, check out Michelle Brusegaard's stuff. She's a painter and fiber artist who is also into "painting, photography, screen-printing, batik and sometimes a little mixed media."
My darling niece gave me this card, and some hand-printed kitchen towels, for my birthday. It's a new experience, for me, to have family in the same city as me. We can drop in on each other and plan outings in just a few texts. I could get used to it!
