TGIF! It’s Friday, and that means it is time for another Findings post, my weekly round-up of links about needlework, art, books, and more from my wanderings around the Internet each week. I’m a librarian, what can I say? I spend a LOT of time in front of the computer. :) Here are this week’s links:
- Sharon McCartney is a mixed media fiber artist who also creates amazing altered books. Check out the galleries on her website. Beautiful stuff.
- Jim Bachor fills Chicago’s potholes with mosaics. Sometimes the city paves them over.
- The Primitive Hare has a pattern in the new June/July issue of JustCrossStitch, and she is offering a kit for the project in her Etsy shop. Nice!
- The Toronto Symphony is using visual listening guides to help audiences get more out of the experience of hearing the music. These are so cool. I would love to see something like this at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
- Epic Stitching wonders if stitching magazine subscriptions are worth the cost. My opinion? Yes! (I subscribe to 5 different magazines–all in digital format.)
- Did you know that DMC is offering a Coloris kit that includes all 24 Coloris embroidery colors, plus patterns, bobbins, and more? So excited!
- Emma’s Craft Projects nominated me for a blogging award. Thanks, Emma!
- And last, but not least, I opened an Etsy shop this week! (But you already knew that, didn’t you?)
