Stitchy Stripy Watchband

What Do I Need?

An old watch face with a watchband bar or a watch face from a craft store (I used a watch face with a 1˝ bar. The watch bar is the little bar on each side of the watch face where a strap is normally attached. Use a tape measure or ruler to measure the length of the bar; that will help you decide how wide your fabric should be.)

4˝ × 22˝ strip of fun fabric

4˝ × 22˝ strip of featherweight fusible interfacing

Fun-colored thread to coordinate with the fabric

Snap kit (which includes a snap tool and size 15 or 16 snaps)

Hammer (to use with the snap tool)

Basic sewing supplies

special skills

•Refer to The Rules of Sewing

• Using an iron

Prepare the Pieces

1.Measure your wrist by wrapping the measuring tape around your wrist twice. The watchband will be super long, so you can wrap it around your wrist twice! Decide on a length that is not too tight and will allow the 2 ends to overlap at least 1˝ and still feel comfortable. Write down that measurement.

A OLD Tramp slep’ in our stable wunst,

An’ The Raggedy Man he caught

An’ roust him up, an’ chased him off

Clean out through our back lot!

An’ a nose like a Bartlutt pear!”

Ship of Fools

Edited by Thomas Austenfeld UNT Press ePub

Ship of Fools

Alexandra Subramanian

When Ship of Fools was published on April Fool’s Day, 1962, Porter knew that her honeymoon with the critics was over. "[L]et it [come]," she had told her publisher, Seymour Lawrence.1 Indeed, since its publication Ship of Fools has invited admiration but also biting criticism from friends, critics, and biographers alike. Some of the criticism, moreover, has been highly personal, highlighting Porter’s own faults, prejudices, and shortcomings, at times disregarding her complex humanity, which included a capacity for kindness that cannot be easily dismissed. Theodore Solotaroff, writing a review of Ship of Fools in Commentary in 1962, summed up the prevailing feeling against the novel. He virtually decimates it from almost every angle, claiming that the "soul of humanity is lacking."2

This paper argues against those who have judged Ship of Fools as marred by cynicism, prejudice, and the author’s darkened view of humanity. The novel will be analyzed, rather, in light of Porter’s debilitating sensitivity, deep understanding of human behavior and motives, and acute awareness of the consequences of casual or calculated cruelty, misogyny, and violence. Porter was attuned to the suffering of the vulnerable, whether afflicted by poverty, parental cruelty and neglect, or disability. To Porter’s mind, acts of unkindness, insensitivity, and a failure to take responsibility, especially regarding the weak and vulnerable, created a tragic and unnecessary cycle of violence, alienation, and despair.

Envoy

James Whitcomb Riley Indiana University Press ePub

MANY pleasures of youth have been buoyantly sung—

And, borne on the winds of delight, may they beat

With their palpitant wings at the hearts of the Young,

And in bosoms of Age find as warm a retreat!—

Yet sweetest of all of the musical throng,

Though least of the numbers that upward aspire,

Is the one rising now into wavering song,

As I sit in the silence and gaze in the fire.

’Tis a Winter long dead that beleaguers my door

And muffles his steps in the snows of the past:

And I see, in the embers I’m dreaming before,

Lost faces of love as they looked on me last:—

The round, laughing eyes of the desk-mate of old

Gleam out for a moment with truant desire—

Then fade and are lost in a City of Gold,

As I sit in the silence and gaze in the fire.

And then comes the face, peering back in my own,

Of a shy little girl, with her lids drooping low,

As she faltering tells, in a far-away tone,

Waitin’ fer the Cat to Die

LAWZY! don’t I rickollect

That-’air old swing in the lane!

Right and proper, I expect,

Old times can’t come back again;

But I want to state, ef they

Could come back, and I could say

What my pick ’ud be, i jing!

I’d say, Gimme the old swing

’Nunder the old locus’-trees

On the old place, ef you please!—

Danglin’ there with half-shet eye,

Waitin’ fer the cat to die!

I’d say, Gimme the old gang

Of barefooted, hungry, lean,

Ornry boys you want to hang

When you’re growed up twic’t as mean!

The old gyarden-patch, the old

Truants, and the stuff we stol’d!

The old stompin’-groun’, where we

Wore the grass off, wild and free

As the swoop of the old swing,

Where we ust to climb and cling,

And twist roun’, and fight, and lie—

Waitin’ fer the cat to die!

’Pears like I ’most allus could

Swing the highest of the crowd—
