fencing patterns

Sorry about the unscheduled blog break. Quite simply, I wore myself out. I am just crawling back into action now.

Meanwhile, I have been nurturing a new obsession with pattern. It began with a book that my talented younger sister bought for me, Pattern Design by Lewis F. Day. (This link is highly recommended as it gives a very generous portion of the book in .pdf.)

First published in 1903, Pattern Design is almost worth reading for the language alone: "But in the very variety of demands made upon us there is some compensation for their unreasonableness."

So I started looking for patterns around me and found a lot that I like in fences, of all places.

But enough unnecessary chatter. It's time for some pictures!

Hi! I got the sassy apron and I love it! Thank you so much! And James loves the little rattle-he actually likes to set up his toys and then knock it over with it, but whatever. And the candy was quite tasty! Thank you so much! It was so fun
