Friday Links: Cats, Bus Stops, Xylophone

Happy new year! Is it a bit late since we’re a week into 2021? And speaking of late, my blog was very kindly mentioned in Mindful Crafting magazine before Christmas. Looks like a lovely magazine too!

I’m sort of in a podcast! Or an email I wrote anyway. :-) It is the 2020 Listeners Stitchery Highlights on the Stitchery Stories podcast. I can’t remember if I have recommended this podcast before? If not, I highly recommend it if you’re interested in stitching. :-)

Xylophone in the woods of Kyushu, Japan plays a Bach tune when a wooden ball rolls down each “key”. Pretty amazing!

Winner of 2020’s new kanji contest in Japan: the character 座 (seat), ingeniously redesigned as a neologism for “social distance.”

    Congrats on the magazine feature. That is a beautiful pattern. Also, who knew there was a stitching podcast? I have watched many Flosstubes (video podcasts) but don’t recall any audio podcasts before this one. Thanks for sharing.

      Thank you! :-)
      There are lots of sewing and stitching podcasts! Should be easy to find by searching on your podcast app of choice. :-)
