A friend-of-the-blog from the Southern Hemisphere is convalescing and has been busy corresponding about Interesting Things...

You may already know about the "sewing bird" - the tailorbird of tropical Asia - which crafts a news from leaves and silk. Below is a video on YouTube of this amazing songbird making its home. The link that our friend sent in was actually to https://stolenstitches.com which has a video at the bottom of the page.

Of course, it being the World Wide Web, there is much to see once one starts on a particular thread. I did not know about "sewing birds". Did you?

And, who knew there was so much on the interweb about Nålebinding, the craft mentioned in last week's blog? You can even learn how to do it by video!

Good luck and speedy recovery to our Southern friend. And thank you for sharing your discoveries while you convalesce.
