I should just admit….I’m an addict

Sigh. I just realized I have a problem. I know, all of you will laugh because those of you who are on Facebook or who follow me Twitter-wise or whatever, probably know this, but I have a blog problem.

I know, it’s not news.

However, I may have just reached my peak. I have subscriptions to 399 blogs that I try to keep up with (as I wrote this and read posts, I added one more, so I’m at an even 400 now!). This along with the fact that I own/administer 4 blogs and write for 3 other publications. I know. It’s a disease.

So, with 1000 blog posts to catch up on, I keep seeing gorgeous artwork, after gorgeous artwork (which will follow here, if I don’t fall asleep catching up on all of them). But keep in mind, I read Mid-Century blogs, news blogs, parenting blogs, art blogs, inspiration blogs and well, it goes on.

I have a problem. It’s a disease.

So, here’s the culmination of what I found for art blogs (especially interesting to those of you who think I’m productive and do amazing work – ha ha).

Lisa Call (who’s a massive inspiration, just sold this fabulous work to a hospital:

She’s an inspiration and I’d love to reach that point in my career – someday.

Then there are these fabulous tutorials, but they’re in Turkish, but apparently some are translated – since I’m working on my flowers I think this is a great resource (oooo, and ahh below:)

I found that gem on Enbrouderie – which is a fabulous resource of all sorts of awesome styles of embroidery!

And THEN! This fabulous Brazilian embroidery tutorial on Shawkl – LOVE this flower:

At least the flowers are resources for my current project – the rest is unavoidable eye candy. So, how many blogs do you read?

    Usually Google Translate does a fairly good job with foreign-language translation of embroidery blogs. You just go to http://translate.google.com/ and put the website in the box, choose “Detect language” and hit translate. Works like a charm on practically anything! I use it a lot myself 🙂

    I have the same addiction as you. Well maybe half as bad as you.
    I follow 145 blogs by Google and heaps by Rss feed.I have 618 posts waiting at the mo..lol.
    I am a very fast reader and just vacuum up all the inspiration out there. Mt favourites are the ones that show “the process”.
