Thanks to Joanna at Things [Handmade], I just learned about a very exciting new TV series, Talking Threads, which is going out on Sky and on the online TV channel countrychannel.tv, and will be made into a DVD as well. The series starts in mid-October – may it be the first of many.

I’d not come across the Country Channel before but it has some other goodies too, including a short feature on Farfield Mill in Cumbria and a 3-part series called Inspirations – interviews with different textile artists about their inspiration and process.

The other thing that caught my eye this week was the new Galleries feature on Flickr. You can collect up to 18 images by Flickr users "around a theme, an idea or just because". So I’ve made a small celebration of the washing line.

    What is it about a clothline that is so beautiful? I just love them. Thanks for sharing.

    These are great Fiona! Especially as a clothesline is such a rare sight these days in the US. Many neighborhoods have restrictive covenants against them because they’re considered an eyesore! Makes no sense to me since they’re such an energy-saver.

    I’m still waiting for your address so I can send you the notecards from my giveaway!

    Yes, totally agree – those washing lines are gorgeous. My cousin lives in San Diego and is encouraged to save energy but has to use a tumble drier as washing lines are considered ugly! Thanks for the Talking Threads info – looking forward to that.
