Hello, hello. The week got away from me, but here is my end-of-the-week roundup of crafty and bookish links from around the web!
Here are this week’s links:
- The Fort Wayne chapter of the Embroiderers’ Guild of America set up camp at their local public library last week for World Embroidery Day. The local paper covered the event, and I love that they even got some young men stitching.
- Fascinating: “The Wartime Spies Who Used Knitting as an Espionage Tool.”
- A major exhibition of military quilts is coming to the American Folk Art Museum in New York. Most of them have never been displayed in the U.S. before.
- Book Riot shares another great book list: 100 Must-Read Books About Happiness
- Artsy interviews the head gardener at Monet’s gardens in Giverny, France.
- Mary Corbett shares a tutorial on how she creates printable hand embroidery patterns.
Video of the Week
“Unfinished Sympathy” by Massive Attack. The entire video was filmed in one shot. Mesmerizing.
