I don't think I'll ever finish checking out this site. Users upload images of pages from their Moleskine sketchbooks. There are some really gifted artists posting their work! LINK
NOTE: At last check, the website for this project was no longer available. The best I could do for a replacement link was a write up over at MOCO Art.

This guy really likes to sew! He has a variety of embroidery and other projects on his blog. Scroll through his old posts and you'll see lots of creatively embroidered toile. I'm not sure which is stranger, the original drawings in the toile or his new views of them. LINK
I'm not sure why many of these works are created upside down though I suspect it adds an additional level to the viewing experience. As many of them are commissioned works, I wonder whose idea it was to copy famous paintings rather than create original works. I'd be interested to see more originals. Oh, and many of the links on the site aren't working properly though most do. For those that don't, you'll still get the idea from the thumbnails. LINK
