Thanks so much for the link. Wonderful juicy embroidery, some people might think it odd how excited I get over it.

docile, eh?
I feel for you being the subject of your dads reading experiement. im curious though - did you grow up to enjoy reading more or less because of it? we read a lot to our kids before they could read - they didn't start to read until they started school but the groundwork was there - and they both (the third one is still being read to) love books. i wonder though if we made it a lesson would they have been turned off.

I read that very article and thought of you (and I too, am addicted to the NY Times - every day online, a must-do). I liked the gloves the best, although the jacket was also nice. Then again, I like more simplistic things. But the work! The work! I've done quite a bit of embroidery in my life and it is sooooo time consuming. Glad you shared with everyone.
