Findings is my weekly roundup of links from my wanderings around the web. Topics often include textiles, embroidery, books and more. Here are this week’s links:
Wild Olive comes up with some awesome rainbow color palettes using DMC floss.
&Stitches reviews the new Coloris floss from DMC. I’m not sure if the threads are available in the U.S. yet, but you can see them on the French DMC website.
The embroidery site at About.com has a new tutorial about painting embroidery hoops for framing. It’s way easier to do than I thought.
The Nashville Needlework Market is next week, and designers have been sharing sneak peeks at some of their new designs on their websites, including With Thy Needle & Thread, Praiseworthy Stitches and Plum Street Samplers.
Artist Olena Mysnyk makes bookmarks that look like characters’ feet sticking out from the pages of the book. Visit her site to learn more.
