For Do-it-yourself Enthusiasts

Have you discovered the unusual offerings from Make Magazine and blog yet?
MAKE Magazine bills itself as “the first magazine devoted entirely to DIY technology projects.” The audience MAKE aims at is “a growing community of resourceful people who undertake amazing projects in their backyards, basements and garages.”
Phillip Torrone, Make Blog Dude and Natalie Zee, Crafts Chica, provide “the most up to date happenings in the Maker and Crafts world” at the blog.
The 40″ X 80″ cross-stitch recreation of the Sistine Chapel fascinated me. It took 10 years for Joanna Lopianowski-Roberts to create. She used 1,809 different color combinations with a total of about 628,296 stitches! Her process is described in her self-published book Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel Ceiling in Cross-stitch.
