oh mister finch!

Ah.. I think we all know Mr Finch by now. So I'm not going to show you anything new here today, but I just fancied putting a few of his pics here in one place so I can look at them whenever I fancy.
Several years ago I got in touch with him about doing a lengthy interview. Then life took over and I didn't get around to it. Serves me right.
Since then.. well he's turned into the craft world's very own Mr Darcy.. instead of walking out of a lake with a dripping wet shirt clinging to his torso.. he has risen up the ranks to show us more and more of his mastery of needle and imagination. His work at times romantic, dark and brooding or playful and always technically sound and solid. Yes ladies, he knows what he's doing.. he has magic hands and he really understands how to handle a piece of fabric.
Whenever he adds a new image or passing fancy.. I see everyone's comments on facebook - an audible mexican wave - a giant collective gush (what would that be called, I wonder..) He is so loved.
So I won't waffle on about him.. I'll just put some pictures here, over which you may join me in a swoon if you so wish.

I took these images from his flickr account - 'ohmisterfinch' and from his website
'oh mister finch' indeed..

'Anonymous' - I just want to clarify that the items are not mine! And yes, you're right - they're all utterly charming aren't they!

'Sally-Ann Parker' - thousands would agree! He has a huge fan club of gushing crafters!
