Friday again already? How did that happen? That means it’s time for another “Findings” post.
Findings is my weekly round-up of needlework, textile, books and art links from my wanderings around the web. Here are this week’s links:
- Mary Corbet reviews the new book Appliqué: Techniques, Projects & Pure Inspiration from the Royal School of Needlework.
- I did not know there was a whole website dedicated to Temari balls. Includes a tutorial page with tips for making your own Japanese thread ball.
- Last year the Denver Public Library created a life-size, 75-foot-long Harry Potter themed maze made out of cardboard boxes. They also filmed a short video walk-through of the maze. So cool. I wish we could do something like this at my library.
- The New Orleans Advocate has a nice, short interview with Linda Crespo, the president of the American Needlepoint Guild.
- The Chicago Tribune highlights 10 new must-read books for this fall.
- Meanwhile, the Huffington Post ups the ante with their list of 20 books to read this fall.
Video of the Week
This week I was enchanted by “La Luna,” a sweet animated short film from 2011 by Pixar.
