Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

It is wonderful for you to have found other creative places for your writing, Beth! And thank you for showing us the full quilt, it is beautiful.

I'm also (newly) experimenting with Twitter (I haven't yet checked out Identi.ca). I resisted the whole Twitter thing for a long time, but like many things I resist, I'm finding it's as interesting as you make it. For me, it's an interesting exercise to say something SHORT to sum up my current condition, the morning's walk, or how my day went. It feels like exercising a different "muscle" than what my blogging normally uses: a different way of encapsulating & sharing experience.

Thanks, Marja-Leena. Isn't it interesting how abstract and modern the quilt ends up looking, and yet the blocks are more than a century old. I always see something different in it. But it certainly wouldn't hold up on a bed for more than a day, and is pretty rough when you see it up close.

Hi Lorianne - yes, I've been keeping up with (and enjoying) your experiments too. That's exactly how it feels to me, and I rather like the enforced brevity!

It's been delightful being on twitter with you.

Thoughtful post, thoughtful comments. Beth, I am delighted to have met you through Identi.ca and look forward to exploring your work. I have learned about craft from my micro-blogging and met some delightful folk. Not much downside that I can see.

Beautiful crazy quilts. One ambition of my youth that I never did fulfill, quilting. Now I'm not sure my back and eyes would take it.

Thanks a lot, Bluegrasspoet! I'm glad to have met you too. It seems like you are friends with my qarrtsiluni co-editor and old online friend Dave (Morning Porch), so that's another connection.

Yes, making stuff has always been a big part of my life. I used to sew a lot and spent many years painting pretty seriously; now I'm more likely to be knitting, but it's all good so far as I'm concerned!

The quilt is fantastic,Beth. Looks quite like a Picasso of the cubist period. but in better colours!
