Un-Threatening Embroidery Lesson

I love to embroider. I love the feel of a sewing needle in my hand. These days I am seeing more work using a sewing needle to embellish, and I continue to encounter knitters who do not feel comfortable holding that sort of needle.

I found myself on Youtube and found this very young, hip, edgy crafts video by “Threadbanger.” It looks a bit like a magazine/podcast but with moving pictures, I’m not familiar with this sort of publication myself.

They went to Austin, TX and interviewed a young embridery artist who has an online business selling embroidery supplies and Very. Simple. Instructions. I liked her directness and simplicity in the short lesson. Here is the
video which includes an embroidery lesson

Dogs, Shepherds, and Sheep, as Art

And for those not into working with your hands or thread/yarn, even you will surely be inspired, amazed, and delighted by Extreme Sheep Herding

For the Record

Remember, I don’t like video/TV/movies as a rule. The sheep herding thing is so good, I’ve watched it twice already.

It includes not one, but four amazing (though short) projects using a herd of sheep and very, very talented dogs and shepherds. What skill! What a great sense of humor, as well!
