I haven’t shared any links in a couple weeks. How time flies! I chalk it up to lazy summer days and too much life-stuff going on. But, I’ve been saving links every day and the backlog is piling up!
Here is this week’s round-up of needlework, textile, books and art links from my wanderings around the web:
- Juliet Martin is a textile artist, and her work is pretty awesome.
- Did you know that the Embroiderer’s Guild of America sells rare and out-of-print textile and needlework books on Amazon? I’ve got this bookmarked now. Rumor is that the items go fast.
- Still looking for summer reading? Try this list of 8 summer books to keep you laughing or librarian Nancy Pearl’s recommended page-turners.
- The Crafty blog shared a bunch of free patterns featuring watermelons. The collection includes a cure embroidery pattern, crocheted drink coasters, and an appliqué design.
- I love these adorable cut-paper collages by illustrator Clover Robin. Sweet and charming.
- Finally, I have to share this because it made me lol this week. This is what being a university librarian feels like sometimes.

I have a “happy songs” playlist that I listen to when I need some serious cheering up. This song is on it.
