Friday Finds is my weekly round-up of needlework, art, and book news from around the web.
Oh, there has been no stitching going on around here recently. The spring semester started at work and I am teaching two classes in addition to my full-time job as a librarian, and I am barely keeping my head above water. I love my classes–and the students–but course preparation, teaching, and grading is taking up all of my free time in the evenings and weekends.
I am trying to keep in things in balance, but since this is only week two of the semester, I need some time to adjust to the new workload.
In the meantime, here are this week’s links:
- Adorable story about two friends and their mutual love of needlework.
- The 112-year old Cone Denim White Oak plant, “the last major manufacturer of selvage denim in the United States,” is being closed.
- The finalists for the 2017 National Book Critics Circle Awards have been announced.
- This interactive sculpture made from clear packing tape on display at the Des Moines Art Center is both fascinating and terrifying. I’m not sure I could climb through that.
- “Textile Artist Creates Nature-Inspired Embroidery Art That “Grows” Beyond Its Frame.”
- This is how I feel about my cat right now.
