link love

I really enjoyed sharing some links last week, so I've decided to continue with link love on Fridays.

If you're textile obsessed, you must visit the Textile Museum in Washington, DC. I had the pleasure of actually visiting there a few years ago, and since then I've been virtually visiting via their website. Not as good as being there in person, but I'll take what I can get!

You must also pay a visit to Fibercopia. Arcadia Smails uses her blog to show all kinds of fiber goodness, from contemporary quilts to historical textiles and everything in between. Get your daily fix!

I'm really quite smitten with Mysterious Letters, which I found via Ruthi Auda. I love mail and letters, I love the idea of  unexpected things that come into one's life in envelopes, I love thinking about the moment of confusion and anticipation when someone receives mail in an unfamiliar hand addressed to them...the wondering and maybe holding of breath while the envelope is opened and the contents pulled out... that moment of everyday suspense...
