was founded in 814 BC by Phoenicians from Tyre. Phoenicians were a sea trading people who were known for the purple dye made from murex shells. As Rome grew beyond its seven hills and it came into conflict with Carthage and its dependents in the western part of the Mediterranean. Ceterum censeo Carthaginem esse delendam.Class/Challenge/House Pride:

Spring Green DressBrief Description:
My mother got a subscription to Ancestry.com this year and I've been having fun poking around in the primordial ooze. The most interesting bit I've found so far (besides an ancient picture of some great-great-grand-dude who looks just like my uncle) is that the branch of the family I'd always assumed was French was in fact Irish, and had something to do with flax way back in the deep dark past where all the men are John, all the women are Mary, and all the records are really dubious. Flax flowers are blue, so this fabric seemed vaguely appropriate.Green & Blue

Woodland QuiltBrief Description:
While researching muggle fairy tales I came across one called The Bear
which featured a princess transformed into a bear by putting on a bear skin and traveling in a magic wheelbarrow. Blankets have transformative powers for little kids as well, offering protection and fuel for imagination. I'm making a baby quilt for my mothers' neighbors and hope it will get plenty of use for story times, forts, and capes. The fabric mom chose has bears and other woodland animals on it, so it should be really cute. I hope to have this done by the end of March so I can take it up with me when I visit in April.
