I’ve been in a stitchy slump, so I didn’t have any updates for WIP Wednesday this week. Sad face. I hope I can relax and do some sewing this weekend. I’d love to finish a couple projects I’ve got going right now. Stay tuned.
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:
- The National Book Award finalists have been announced this week. I’ll admit haven’t read any of them.
- Sleepy Kitty Stitches has joined the Year of WIPs Challenge hosted by Melanie Watkins, aka the Soulful Stitcher. The challenge is tempting…
- DMC has a cute free dancing skeletons cross-stitch pattern that would be easy to finish before Halloween.
- Or, use leftover threads to stitch a sweet candy corn brooch on felt.
- I can’t believe it’s been 16 years since Gilmore Girls first premiered! How is that possible? Scott Patterson, aka Luke, surprised some fans at a coffee shop in California on Wednesday.
