Since I can’t stitch yet, I’m doing a lot of reading. I’ve read two novels and I’m reading a book about Oriental Motifs. I’m also reading a lot of blogs and thought you might enjoy a few of them as well.

http://tea-and-carpets.blogspot.com/ Written by an American Journalist living in Prague – all about Oriental rugs with links to rug museums,etc.
http://medievalartcraft.blogspot.com/ Written by Kathy Storm – many kinds of medieval crafts, including needlework and stitches
I hope you enoy them as much as I do.
