- &Stitches is having a stitchy swap! Would you like to make / receive a special piece of embroidery and make a new friend in the process?! Of course you would. Duh! Come read all about it and sign up!
- I somehow haven’t yet told you guys that Little Dorrit & Co. (specifically, our Pride and Prejudice-themed embroidery patterns) got a fantastic mention in the March/April issue of Celebrating Everyday Life with Jennifer Carroll – thank you for featuring us, Jennifer! It’s a very pretty magazine, go check it out!
- Pretty Woman is coming to Broadway. Oh, for god’s sake. Seriously?!? Do people really want to go to the theater to see a movie? REALLY?? These things always make me feel bad for all those talented playwrights out there that can’t get a job now.
- On the other hand, this trailer for a real movie based on The Tale of The Three Brothers (if you need to ask, you’re not a Harry Potter fan and you won’t care) made New England School of Communications students is pretty damn awesome.
- And if you love movies like I do, you might enjoy this 15 minute crash course in the history of movie trailers. Fascinating!
- Ok, ok – I admit it. I love great, well-written TV and movies. (Also some really bad movies, but that’s a different thing altogether!) So of course I have to share this series of Micro Oral Histories by Vulture.com – what a clever idea! I’m bummed it was just a week-long thing, but they covered a few of my most favoritest things: Buffy’s Season 6 villians, The Trio, the party scene from Clueless, and the amazing final seven minutes of Six Feet Under. (If you haven’t seen Six Feet Under but plan to one day, absolutely do not click that link. You shouldn’t know anything about it.)
- And to lead us to this week’s mosaic of loveliness, check out this beautiful screenprinted napkin by Yardage Design, as posted on Instagram. Swoon! Check out the Yardage Design shop here.
