I have not been home all week, so very little stitching has been happening. I am looking forward to some downtime this weekend because I need a break!
Friday Finds 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 Sketchbook Skool has some tips for making time for creative activities each day.
- A piece of slavery-era embroidery on display at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture is getting attention from historians.
- Open Culture links to dozens of free coloring books from museums and libraries around the world.
- Janet Perry has some tips for selecting threads for a needlepoint project.
- The Academy Awards are on Sunday. Lithub looks at the books behind the nominated films.
Video of the Week
