Page 164 of Mark Twain's autobiography, which I mentioned previously, I am reading, starts "The Beauties of the German Language" an indescribably funny account of the German phenomena of stringing words together. You can go read it here for yourself...just scroll back one page to get to the beginning of the essay.

Yes, that IS a word above. I highly recommend "hearing" this read on the Autobiography recording. Funny, funny, funny.

In the meantime, I'm almost at my goal of 65 items in the quilt shop. I'm officially at 63 today, with two more items to list tomorrow morning bringing the total, finally to 65! At last. Not that I plan to rest on my laurels at this point, as I hope to sell some of these goodies before long.

The shop is busy with three custom quilts in various stages of cutting and piecing. Surely, I've got lots of extra time on my hands to construct interesting and wonderful blog posts. LOL.

In other news, I've also started photographing my prints, from which I've included here so you can see. The listings for my prints have only had the image, and I thought it would be nice to actually show the print and what it looks like. The paper is so nice. It would be hard to imagine the quality of the paper without seeing its edge, in my humble opinion, and I think these photos really are getting that point across. You can see it's not just a sheet of photocopy paper, it's a really nice, thick cotton rag paper, with a nice tooth to it. My printer, Evolv Printing in Easthampton, MA, does such a great job. I'm never unhappy with the prints.
