Incredibly Delicate Embroidery Art Inspired by Nature

Embroidery Art by Meredith Woolnough

Australian artist Meredith Woolnough creates incredibly delicate embroidery art inspired by leaves, coral, and other natural forms. Woolnough’s embroideries are suspended in space without a fabric backing. She achieves the effect by embroidering the designs on a water soluble fabric that she dissolves upon completion. You can follow her work on Instagram.

What It’s Like to Fly Aboard a Singapore Airlines A380 in the Über Fancy Suites Class

Flying in Singapore Airlines Suites Class

Earlier in September, entrepreneur Derek Low decided to try out the über fancy passenger suites that are available on Singapore Airlines A380 aircraft. Low paid for a ticket from Singapore to New York City — at a price tag of roughly $18,400 — with a “colossal” amount of frequent flier miles. He then proceeded on a mind-bogglingly luxurious journey, consisting of super exclusive airport lounges, incredibly delicious-looking food and drink, and commercial air travel’s only in-flight double bed (all of which he meticulously documented in photos).

A Miniature Cake Pan by ThinkGeek That Creates Small Cakes Shaped Like a d20 Die

d20 Cake Pan

ThinkGeek has created a lovely miniature cake pan that creates small cakes shaped like a d20 die. Each mold creates four 3″ cakes, and ThinkGeek suggests using a recipe with yeast for the best results.

Each d20 Critical Hit Mini Cake Pan makes 4 d20s at a time which each measure 3″ across. They work with any store-bought mix or recipe from scratch, but we suggest something with yeast to take advantage of the mold’s unique construction. Put the mold on a pan before sticking it in the oven to stabilize it, and bake according to the recipe instructions. Just keep an eye on it while you bake with it the first time in case you need to adjust a bit. Sort of like you’d keep an eye on a new NPC joining the party, in case he or she needs *ahem* adjusting.

Alley the Cat Sets the World’s Record for the Longest Jump Made By a Cat

A rescued cat named Alley, who currently performs with The Acro-Cats (see previous), has set the World Record for the longest jump made by a cat. Samantha Martin, Alley’s human and trainer, says that she knew that Alley was a talented cat from the start.

Alley started out as such a frail little kitty and to have her grow up and become strong and then eventually end up being a Guinness World Record holding cat is so exciting for us and for her because she had such, you know difficult beginnings and now she’s a star. In a year’s period we got her from jumping two, three feet, four feet, five feet and then finally right before she turned a year old she was able to leap the full six feet.
