Friday Finds is my weekly round-up of needlework, art, and book news from around the web.
It’s nearly 10pm here in chilly Chicago, but it’s still Friday, so let’s share some links.
Here are this week’s links:
- I guess I must be old because I’ve read half of the books on this list of “15 Children’s Books No One Reads Now.” I have a copy of Hitty, Her First Hundred Years that my grandmother gave me when I was little, and I will never, ever part with that book.
- “Mexico-based textile artist Victoria Villasana applies colorful embroidery designs to vintage black and white photographs of cultural icons.”
- Sort of book-related, and way too cute not to share: “Orlando Animal Shelter Sorts Dogs into Hogwarts Houses.”
- The Craft Industry Alliance went to the Fall Quilt Market and shares photos of all the goodies.
- Photographer Stephen Draschan captures museum-goers who accidentally match the artwork.
- Have you joined the Embroiderer’s Guild of America Stitch-a-Long Facebook group? You don’t need to be an EGA member to join, and the EGA posts a new free project every month. November’s project is a fun scissors case on counted canvas.

I will be sharing my favorite gratitude songs all this month. I’ve had this on repeat today because it’s been that kind of week. Hard to listen to this without getting teary.
