Serger Stitches and Thread Tension Cheryl - Sewing Editor Yesterday at 08:09 PM
In trying to decipher optimal sewing machine tension for fabric, as if needle and thread choices were not enough for the home sewer, the serger or overlock machine elevates all, at times frustratingly, to an entirely new level of machine sewing considerations. Balanced serger stitches are the goal.

Re: Inspiration Quote Angie 06/06/23 12:26 PM
"Enough" is a feast.

Buddhist proverb

This Buddhist proverb emphasizes the idea that contentment and satisfaction come from appreciating what we already have, and not always seeking more. Buddhism adheres closely to the concept that desiring more than what we have causes suffering. It instead emphasizes nonattachment, which suggests that we should not cling to material possessions or experiences, as these things are often out of our control, and the constant longing for them can lead to dissatisfaction. Instead, we should aim to cultivate inner peace and contentment through acceptance and gratitude for what we already have.

Re: Astro Women - Birthdays Mona - Astronomy 06/04/23 01:26 PM
Erika Böhm-Vitense was born Erika Helga Ruth Vitense on June 3, 1923 in Kurau (now Stockelsdorf), Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.

She began her undergraduate studies at University of Tübingen, but moved to Kiel University in 1945 for its stronger astronomy department. After completing her undergraduate degree in 1948, she stayed on for graduate studies. Not only did she complete her doctorate degree three years later, but she was also awarded the university's prize for the best Ph.D. thesis. She then stayed at Kiel as a research associate, Two years after receiving her Ph.D., she published The hydrogen convection zone of the Sun. This is one of her most famous works as it has been cited at least 287 times since its publication.

In 1954 she married fellow student Karl-Heinz Böhm and afterwards was known as Erika Böhm-Vitense. The pair visited Lick Observatory and the University of California, Berkeley for a year. Upon their return to Kiel, her husband, who was also an astrophysicist, was given a tenure track position, but she was not. The same situation applied when they went to Heidelberg.

In 1968, they went to the University of Washington in Seattle where Erika started as Senior Research Associate. She was later awarded a full-time professor position in 1971, eventually becoming a professor emeritus.
During her time at the University of Washington, she made fundamental contributions to the understanding of Cepheid variable stars, stellar binaries, stellar temperatures, chromospheric activity, rotation, and convection. She has over 300 academic papers on the Harvard Astrophysics Data System, of which she is the first author on more than two-thirds of these publications.

Erika was also awarded the Annie Jump Cannon Prize from the American Astronomical Society in 1965, and the Karl Schwarzschild Medal from the Astronomische Gesellschaft in 2003. The latter is most prestigious prize in Germany in the field of astronomy and astrophysics.

Erika Böhm-Vitense continued to live in Seattle until her death in 2017 at the age of 93.

FamilySearch Angie 06/03/23 12:41 PM
FamilySearch.org is a wonderful resource. The LDS have microfilmed so many courthouse records and many have become available to use online. There was a courthouse fire recently in Georgia and fortunately the old records had been microfilmed. The newer records were not but I hope the court had digitized them and saved them on servers somewhere. But if you go to their site, log in (you must register but it is FREE), click on the SEARCH tab and choose Catalog and type in your county or city where you want to research. Some records are online but some are only viewable at one of the research/stake libraries or at an affiliate library (my neighborhood library is an affilate).

If you're so inclined, you can transcribe sets of records so that they become indexed.

Happy hunting.

Shibori Tie Dyeing Cheryl - Sewing Editor 05/31/23 10:36 PM
Shibori is a Japanese hand dyeing technique that involves folding, twisting or bunching cloth, binding it, then dyeing using an indigo dye. Different than the multi-colored tie-dyeing psychedelic creations of the anti-establishment youth of the 1960's, Shibori uses indigo dye on light colored cloth.

Re: Newspapers Angie 05/27/23 01:51 AM
llLOL, prices, yes, - $3000 for a car but even then that was a lot of money. Fashions, fun things kids were doing in school; and information about road projects that did come to pass; an annexation issue between the county and the city; all very fascinating. Fun also were marriage notices for people who I met years later.

I don't think I have purchased any new clothing in three years. Covid changed the way I dress and how I view my needs. It is time though to check my closet - some items are looking a bit worn. I get enough catalogs in the mail to see what is being featured.

LOL, we came home in mid January. My Christmas tree is still up and decorated. In five months it will be time to put it up so I'm ahead of the game, I think. My neighbor told me they left their Christmas lights up in the windows but that does look nice when I drive home and pass their house in the evening.
