Trying something a bit different today. No photo. I have never done a blog post without a picture. I came across some really interesting articles that I want to remember and thought someone else might find them interesting. Handmade sketchbooks can be found by clicking on that link. A really talented artist there. 19th-century-embroidered-straightjacket is very interesting to see. Stitching is good for the soul and this woman definitely figured that out. The Mozart effect has been known about for a long time. I simply need to remember to listen to more Mozart. Just found another interesting article about a Canadian stitcher Amanda McCavour . Her work has been at a local gallery. This you woman is going places! Yay!
