Jordan to venture into the world of craft? Holy shit.

According to Heat, she spent her 35th birthday sewing pinnies.

So it’s not crazy to suggest she might do a haberdashery line, right. KP Equestrian is a real thing, y’know.

Nicola Horlick: when on earth does she have time to sew?

The uber-business woman admits to the Daily Mail that she loves it. Fair – it’s an amazing de-stressor – but, still. She’s got FIVE kids and a MEGA job. I write about this kind of thing, and still rarely get the time to make.

I’m glad she does though.

Catherine Zeta Jones is our new BFF.

‘Catherine Zeta-Jones likes to spend her spare time knitting, reporter Tim Vincent has revealed.’ Nice.

(And while we’re here, during my blogging hiatus, we learned that Britney is a sewing fan too.)

When QR-3D met craft.

This is an awesome gallery of stitched QR-3D codes (those black and white things you scan with your phone) on guardian.co.uk.

(I must admit, though I don’t like showing-off too much, that I gave them the tip off for that gallery. Am uber glad they went ahead and published it. They know their good craft stuff.)

This is AMAZING.

This gallery of stitching on the BBC by Sarah Greaves is amazing. Well worth a look. Especially if you haven’t seen chocolate, bananas and toasters stitched up before.
