Cat-egorical

Sometimes, fabric really does speak to me.  Northcott’s “Cat Tales” Collection were some of these fabrics. The large repeating Library Cat Shelves fabric needed its own space to shine, like a cat sprawling on a sunlit patch of carpet. So large blocks were created for this fabric. The complimentary fabrics needed to have some fun. […]

In the US, tomorrow will also mark the 100th anniversary of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington Cemetery. One hundred years ago, an unknown soldier was buried at the tomb.

The Christmas holiday has some familiar smell for me: gingerbread, almond, chocolate, and peppermint. Peppermint is probably one of the ones I most strongly relate to Christmas. They remind me of the peppermint candies my grandmother would set out. My mouth starts to water when I think of the candy canes hung on the tree, […]

Star Struck

CuFe

CuFe, what an odd name for a pattern. Is it from another language? If so, what does it mean? CuFe does come from another language that my geeky friends may recognize. It comes from the language of chemistry. Cu is for Copper and Fe is for Iron. Ok – why pick these two metals for […]

Victory at Sea

I really enjoy the sea, whether sailing on it or watching it from shore. The sea is temperamental, which gives it personality. I have been on it during storms and calm, but prefer it somewhere in between. It may be a romantic notion to think of the sea to have a personality, but I am […]
