Coral, our South African (former?) blogging friend sent me this link about a giant Star Wars tapestry. She was put off by calling it a tapestry since that is weaving and this thirty foot Star Wars embroidery is done in cross-stitch. Tapestry is weaving. However, since the Bayeux Tapestries are embroidered (and thus not technically tapestries) are the most famous tapestries going, I'm willing to cut some slack. Also 30-foot Star Wars embroidery. Also, $20,000.
CinDC, our friend at Pencils Crossing, sent this story of a recently unearthed stitchery. It's incredible how it brings together the dude's interests (19th century workhouses) and mine (embroidery). Also the embroidery was found in County Durham, where the dude is from. You can read more about the Frayed exhibit here. And if you are in or near Norwich, why haven't you gone to see it yet?
