Diane over at Craftypod has been rounding up her favourite links each Friday, and I’m going to try to do the same, just in my own way that won’t stress me out like a weekly commitment totally stresses me out. I’m so loathe to commit to something before I’ve even done it once that I won’t even tell you what I think my parameters will be.
So. Here are links to some things I found hilarious, thought-provoking, drool-worthy or otherwise worth spending my time with last week. Perhaps you’ll enjoy them this week:
- Abby Glassenberg compiled ten tips for starting an art collection, and it’s a must-read. She reminds us it’s not difficult to collect art, and that a home filled with art we find beautiful is a tremendous source of happiness. I have it in mind to take a photo tour of my house now.
- There’s a whole Tumblr of Texts from Superheroes, but this one I first saw on Pinterest is the funniest of the ones I’ve read.
- A lot of smart people have written very thoughtful pieces in response to the fire that killed hundreds last week in a Bangladeshi garment factory, but knitwear designer Miriam Felton’s post (that I’m not even sure she wrote specifically in the context of this event) about The Virtue and Shaming of the Green Movement is the one that grabbed me the hardest.
- Over on Wise Craft, Blair Stocker interviewed artist Lisa Solomon. Love.
- Have I mentioned that since I seem to have groked the basics of sewing, I’ve been itching to try sewing garments? I might start with these adorable baby pants. Quick handmade baby gifts? Yes, please.
