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:
- This woman stitched a six-foot-by-eight-foot needlework tapestry of the first moon landing and it’s as incredible as you’d think.
- Pintangle interviews Maya Mathew of Million Little Stitches about her embroidery work.
- Brown Paper Bag has a nice round-up of free hand embroidery patterns to download and stitch.
- My Modern Met shares a fun timeline of women’s fashion from 1784-1970, compiled from vintage fashion illustrations.
- Go behind the scenes at the factory in Parkersburg, West Virginia and see how Kreinik braid is made in this short video. The braiding machine is pretty cool.
- Lit Hub tells about 14 new books to read this month. Some odd and intriguing titles on the list.
- “Only when we’re at peace inwardly can we bring some measure of peace to a violent world.”
On the jukebox this week…”Dig Down” by Muse. Weird video. Great song. And, I love the homage to ’80s icon Max Headroom. Nice.
