TGIF! It’s time for another roundup of links from my travels around the web this week:
- Artist Satoru Aoyama adds embroidery stitches to vintage black-and-white photos to create mixed media works of art.
- Open Culture has the scoop on where you can download 300 knitting books published between 1849-2012 for free.
- Annie made a clever pouch for one of her embroidery hoops — I have never seen a cross-stitch piece finished this way. Very creative.
- Summer Pierre has a lovely comic about how a poem by Nikki Giovanni got her through a tough period.
- Mary Corbet posted this awesome guide to finding designer embroidery kits. I’m totally swiping this for my guild for new workshop ideas.
- I love Jennifer Louden’s “10 Ways to Discern if Your Idea is Worth Sticking With.”
- Sometimes I find myself reading fascinating articles about the most random topics. This is one of them: “The harsh truth about speed-reading“
Video of the Week
This week I found a lovely music video from a group called the Jane Bordeaux Band who describe their music as “American folk-country music in Hebrew.” The video is a wonderful little animated short.
