Picture from the day we decorated for Christmas. The embroidered hoops are from my first book, Stitched Blooms. It makes me happy hanging them up every year. :-)
Giveaway! I am doing a giveaway of a copy of Mandalas to Embroider over on Instagram. Find it here.
Someone translated the London Tube map into German and it is brilliant and hilarious. Especially if you understand German of course. A few of my favourites: Nimmdillzirkus, Hundslangsam Zentral and Kannnichtweiter. :-)
Image translation. This is both cool and freaky. We literally can't trust the pictures we see anymore.
A look behind the magic process that is MimiLove's.
It is the 25 year anniversary of the R.E.M. album Automatic for The People and I've been listening a lot to the album. Sad to say, the song Ignoreland is just as relevant (maybe even more so) to the state of politics as it was in 1992. (Some swearing in that song, so possibly NSFW.)
Speaking of that album, I'd love the special edition CD box set they put out with lots of demos, but 75 quid is a bit much for me! :-D
Have you ever heard of corner to corner crochet? It was new to me but I definitely have to try it!
I have been sewing tops for myself. I didn't tell you that, did I? I'd love to make a top in this Regent Street Lawn fabric. Isn't it pretty? Very Liberty-y, but without the expensive price tag!
If you have access to BBC iPlayer, I highly recommend Handmade in Mexico: Huipil. It was fascinating and kinda moving too.
Need a Christmas play list to listen to? I'm putting together a list on Spotify. There's 40+ songs on there right now, but I keep adding to it. My epic Christmas list. ;-)
