NOW AND THEN: Pendleton and Hudson Bay Blankets

What ARE these visual forms? The following book on Lang’s films will try to offer at least a partial answer to this question. Lang’s use of geometric forms such as circles, spheres, cylinders, rectangles, polygons and spirals will be highlighted. So will Lang’s exploration of architecture. Fritz Lang’s films will be placed against their background in prose mystery fiction, spy fiction and science fiction. Lang’s approaches to manhunts, scientific detective work, and the ability of police investigation to change the picture of reality will be analyzed.

The Collector’s Guide to Point Blankets presents never-before published research into the dating and valuation of many types of point blankets manufactured for the fur trade and for modern homes. The broad variety of patterns and colours featured in this book will astonish even avid trade blanket collectors, who all too often believe that the popular multi-stripe was the only patter ever available. In addition, the guide gives detailed information on the history, manufacture and care of this “artifacts” that have played such an important cultural role, particularly for the peoples of the First Nations of North America.

The guide includes hundreds of full colour photographs. It also includes a history of the point blanket in the Fur Trade, Indian Trade and the general retail trade of the 19th and 20th centuries.

Pie crust In its most basic definition, pie crust is a simple mix of flour and water. The addition of fat makes it pastry. In all times and places, the grade of the ingredients .

So you can hand wash your blanket in a gentle detergent like Zero or Woollite. The trick is in the drying. You must gently press or blot the water out by wrapping it in towels: Then lay it out flat to dry, preferably in the shade on your lawn. Since this is pretty awkward for most people, dry cleaning is the recommended care. With normal use your blanket ought not to need dry cleaning very often.

But be sure to dry clean: If you have recently acquired a second-hand blanket, to ensure that no moth eggs infest it; or If the blanket is one of the pastel colour series General Care: Brush your blanket occasionally to raise the nap and dislodge any foreign particles which might be trapped in the fibres. Store it in a cedar chest or closet preferred when not in use to protect it from moth damage.

If you haven’t got either then wrap securely in an old bed sheet or pair of cotton pillowcases; do not store in plastic or vinyl as you risk damage from humidity. Store folded or hung from a hanger but if storing for any period of time be sure to re-fold so creases do not become permanent. With proper care there is no reason why your blanket should not last for decades – or even longer.

Sunday, June 28, About the Blanket When I put up my new blog header last week I suddenly realized I had never posted about the blanket that’s in the middle of the collage. To be honest, I’m not much of a blanket knitter. There are dozens of socks and sweaters and vests to be found in my home, but not a single handknit blanket.

Candy canes. Why are some candies associated with Christmas? Hundreds of years ago sugar was very expensive. It was a food of the wealthy. For other people, it was a special treat saved for holidays (Christmas, Easter) and other special occasions (weddings, christenings).

July 29th Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult An ancient power long kept dormant stirs in the shadows once more as one boy embarks on a quest to earn his freedom and the freedom of his world! Magic has turned to myth, the Vaelhyreans of old to legend, and the power wielded by the ancients has long been forgotten. However, with Ealdred, a mere half-breed slave boy, myth becomes real, the forgotten remembered, and the power of legend is reborn within him.

Ealdred is merged into a world of mystery, brimming with deceit, where the remaining Vaelhyreans are in a desperate fight for their very survival. But when he meets Bellator, clever yet treacherous servant of Zeldek, an alternative is presented to him:

Blankets weave way back into our affections

Blankets weave way back into our affections Published: In their heyday, every good bed sported one and children, including loveable Peanuts character Linus, gripped one for comfort. It even spawned phrases including “don’t be a wet blanket” and “wrong side of the blanket”. In the s, more than 2, people worked in the blanket capital of the world — Dewsbury — weaving them as fast as they could. But the real McCoy, as opposed to “fleeces” that have barely seen a sheep’s back, is creeping back into interior fashion.

Local Organic Just as the summer sun rises, dozens of independent growers from the surrounding region unpack their trucks and vans and set up stalls to sell fresh vegetables, fruit, meat, fish, cheese, bread, honey, and flowers. Some farm stands take up more space than others; some resemble lean-tos, with weathered sunshades pitched against box trucks lettered with names such as evolutionary organics. Other stands are sleeker, sheltered by new white canopies that cast an even, dispersed light onto the piles of fruits and vegetables on tables below: This produce bears little resemblance to the standardized, homogenous grocery store fare.

The variegated farm stalls line the western edge of this bustling urban plaza—the type of place where, in the years before agribusiness and processed foods, farmers and shoppers would have come for exactly the same purpose. Short of growing it oneself, the greenmarket is as virtuous as it gets. Over the past half century the dominant food system in the West has based itself on a toxic model.

Crops are grown on landscapes remade as flat expanses of biological minimalism, swept clean of most life-forms by use of petrochemical pesticides.

This iconic Early’s woolen trade blanket imported from Canada has long been considered a true investment piece by collectors as well as modern woodsmen, either as coveted cold weather bedding or material for hooded ‘capote’ clothing. This authentic Witney Point blanket label features a trademark image set within an oval border depicting a native North American Indian chief with feathered headdress.

Straight stitching is used to affix label to the blanket. This design was adopted by Early’s family mills for use on its point blankets manufactured in Witney, England during much of the 20th Century. Blanket label text reads:

Contents of this page click on blue hyperlinks Linguistic data notes by J. Musically specific documentation of ceremonial and recreational song-making, singing, and dancing from the period can be sorted into four cascading categories: While category 4 data is the principal focus of this first page, many of the actual documents also record song texts [3], and give further details of performance, meaning, and context described verbally [2] and pictorially [1].

Other complementary pages will be created, in due course, to log documents that lack category [4] data, but are sources for categories [1], [2] and [3]. Simply then, this first checklist covers all Australian Indigenous songs documented during the colonial era for which music survives. Until , all the musical records listed here take the form of manual musical transcriptions into Western notation, from live performances or the observer’s memories of live performances, with or without accompanying texts, that survive in printed or occasionally manuscript forms we also list one lost transcription.
