She is pretty! Looks like she is gliding over a field of snow :).

The folds in her clothes are really impressive!

This is the cross stitch project I've been working on. I just finished it. Jeff--it's called cross stitch because the picture is formed out of x's. Each stitch in the picture is an x. I am now working on a similar angel, but facing the other direction with a wreath, instead of a candle and brunette instead of blonde (bought both patterns at a flea market for a total of $2). I'm also working on a bookmark.

Jeff--I'm going to admit that I just skimmed, but it looks cool. Thank you for sharing. I think it's great that your dad helped with your dissertation.

Yeah he did the three-D diamond shapes.

They represent lattices, which are special types of ordered structures.

Thank-you.

And yeah thanks for looking at it :-) That someone would check it out makes me smile.

It's not actually all that sophisticated (except for the category theory). Mostly just hard because the field is a bit obscure.

Did you check out the pictures? My dad did a few drawing for it. (But the page numbers in the credits are wrong. Sigh.)

The linked worked. I was able to open the PDF of the whole paper.

Way over my head :). HAHA! Totally not surprised though.

Yah for a PhD dissertation though, impressive!

If anyone is interested in looking at my other publications (pre-dissertation) and you can't find them on the web or they are behind paywalls, I'm willing to send copies. :-)

Cross stitch is essentially a picture done in thread on fabric. There are several different kinds of stitches in it, but the most common looks like an x, which is why it's called cross stitch. When I finish this project, I'll post a picture so you can see.

I'd love to see your math. Go ahead and post the link. That would be great!

So I've heard of cross-stitches but never really knew what they are. Is it basically like a picture, only in fabric?

Also, would anyone want me to post a link to some of the math I did? Like a link to my dissertation?

Jeff

(I just though of the dissertation because math is one of my CREATIVE outlets. Math is both the most rigorous of the sciences AND the most abstract fine art :-)

That is a great idea. Sometimes I pick one that is too intimidating so then I can just pick it up randomly. Having two would relax that some.

Smart smart!

I definitely will do. I agree that the complicated ones are definitely more interesting, but sometimes I need a quick easy project. I used to have two projects going at a time: an easy one and a complicated one. I'd alternate depending on my mood, but that was before kids.

You should share take a picture once you are done. I find the complicated ones more interesting, I hope you are enjoying it!

Loren--that is gorgeous. I'm making progress on my Christmas angel. It's one of the most complicated and largest projects I've worked on, but I probably have a month or two left.

The Venus fly trap is Kurt Von Trapp. He is in charge of the gardens. Sorry I couldn't rotate this one....



This is one of my favorites :)

Hey Team,

I had a request to share some of the metal projects my husband makes and I help paint. I thought having a place to share more generally would be nice (I know we have some sewers and stitchers, and some poetry writters too). So if you have something to share, please do!
