Sobre mimMy picture shows my quilt, Flowsnake, made in 1983. There is a single line of quilting at the boundary of the orange and blue fabrics.
The idea for this quilt came from the December 1976 issue of Scientific American, pages 124-133, a Martin Gardner article on fractals.

Sobre a minha bibliotecaWith tags, I'm discovering I have many distinct book collections. I have a technical library with physics, mathematics and a sprinkling of electrical engineering, and a sewing room library, including quilting, knitting, embroidery, clothing, and tatting. These two major areas overlap in the tag math quilt. Many of my math quilts are shown on my web site: http://www.mathquilt.com. I'm especially fond of my Moebius quilt.
My third collection is tagged language. This includes word origins and foreign languages.
My fourth collection is tagged finance. This includes books on personal finance, stocks and real estate.
My fifth collection is located in my costume closet, along with my kids' collection of drama and Halloween clothing, puppets, detritus, and general stuff. This is a small but well-loved collection. The books are supplemented with magazines and pictures of costumes. When I've finished cataloging my books, maybe I'll sort the costume closet.
My sixth collection is tagged cookbooks. So much food, so little time. Right now I'm interested in sourdough cooking. Somewhere I have an envelope from the nice people who mail out Fred, the sourdough starter. I don't do well with wheat, so I'd like to make sourdough rye.
My seventh collection is tagged fitness. This includes books on exercise, nutrition, and diets. I didn't know I had so many! Despite Joyce Vedral's best efforts and my membership at 24 Hour Fitness, I remain a theoretical fitnessist.
Fiction, genealogy, and music -- I haven't cataloged many of those yet.
I'm probably two thirds through cataloging my sewing room. I'm guessing I have around 3000 books.
My tags form a meta-index, an uber-search of all my books. I'm currently averaging over 10 tags per book. Also, I put some detail into my comments as I catalog and tag, so I can remember the gist of each book, and especially so I can observe which books exactly cancel each other out in their opinions of how the world/universe works.
I scan and upload the cover of any of my books without Amazon or LT covers just like mine. That makes the cover view very cool.
I own all of the books I have listed; this is not a wishlist. I'm a regular at the Friendswood Public Library, and love sampling their shelves of new books; often I'm inspired to buy a copy for my own library.
In September 2007 I gave a talk on LibraryThing at FPL, and was asked if I have read all my books. Some, like Strunk and White, I have read over 10 times; some books, once or twice. Some non-fiction I've skimmed, and have marked for further reading or skimming. (Does anyone else think the entry for "flock" in the American Heritage Dictionary is really interesting? As much as I find dictionaries good reading, I've never read one cover-to-cover.) And, I have stacks of unread fiction to read one day. The short answer, then, is No, I haven't read all my books. I have lots to look forward to.
