Growing up Rattie! :)

The cute little white one was raised by me for a bit then his older brother took over. (middle guy in last photo) Unfortunately his bro passed away at 6 months of age due to a stroke. He still has his other brother Pepper (dumbo pictured on the left in the last photo) Both brothers are doing great and they are about 2 years old now.


Today the Department of Teeny-weeny Wonders was delighted to learn about the work of Buckinghamshire, England-based illustrator Chloe Giordano, who uses freehand embroidery to create incredibly small, yet finely detailed depictions of animals.

The final works of a sleeping fawn or mouse are scarcely larger than the size of a thimble, yet can take long periods of time to complete as she mixes myriad thread colors to achieve perfection for each piece.

In addition to wonderfully wee embroidered pieces like those pictured here, Giordano also creates 3D sculptures. You can keep up with all of Chloe Giordano’s artwork right here on Tumblr at karenin. She’s currently available for comission-based work as well.
