Findings Post Header Image

It’s Friday! Time for “Findings,” my weekly round-up of links to needlework news, literature, art and more from my wanderings around the web each week. Here are this week’s links:

“Like everything else, the way we read changes with time and age. The books I find engrossing now still have the power to make the world around me vanish. But I can’t inhabit them as I did with my childhood favorites.”

Video of the Week

I know I usually share goofy animated shorts or music videos, but this week’s video is really special. In 1967, artist Sheila Hicks created two large-scale tapestries for the Ford Foundation’s auditorium and boardroom. After decades of wear and tear, rather than repairing them, she recreated them nearly fifty years later. This 5-minute video shares her story. I may have gotten misty-eyed. And, if you’re anywhere near Omaha, Nebraska, there is an exhibit of her work going on now at the Joslyn Art Museum.

    Always good stuff here. Loved the links and I agree about the connection between crafting and mental health. Angela Walters a famous quilter says Quilting is my therapy, threads are my meds. Works for Stitchers too!
