Crafty word of the day

I love word of the day, especially creative ones. About 6 months ago I discovered the typographical gem Beautiful Swear Words, but the latest wordy blog doing the rounds is And Sew For Today. This tumblr features hand embroidery by Emma Ruth, who stitches a random word every day, in a variety of ways onto a variety of fabrics. Listing the dictionary definition of the word, Emma’s interpretation can be both literal and creatively interpretive. There was even a ‘five days of fonts’ where Emma stitched typographical suggestions, from American Typewriter to Webdings. Brilliant stuff.
