Susieq,

Thank you for the link to a very interesting history of Irish quilts!

I too am a quilter and I plan to do a Celtic styled quilt in the future. Finding patterns that they may have used is a challenge. Very interesting (and sad) that many people used a single coat on their bed for warmth! Also very interesting, and kind, that the gentlewomen would teach those in their employ needlework. That act of kindness may very well have saved lives, as the women could then put together whatever scraps they had at their disposal to create blankets to warm their families on cold winter nights!

Thanks again for the link and post any pictures of your Celtic Quilts for us to see!

Just watched "The Tourist" with Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolee. It was good, however, some of the stunts looked a bit fake. But I did enjoy it and would watch it again.

Okiwen,

You may want to try this website http://www.rampantscotland.com/features/faq.htm

It has good information on the question of clans and tartans. It also has links to a clan map and to other websites that may be able to better answer your questions with lists of Septs to the Clans.

My family is Campbell and Stewart. Traditionally, you would go with your paternal side, but today we can choose.

Good luck in your hunt!

65% General American English

15% Dixie

10% Midwestern

10% Upper Midwestern

0% Yankee

I lived in Wisconsin for 23 years, I guess that's where the upper midwest comes in. Otherwise I was born in Oklahoma, grew up in Kansas and have lived in Texas, Mississippi and Arkansas.

They missed a possible answer for water fountain, drinking fountain. In Milwaukee they call it a "bubbler".

One country, a million languages!!!

Nettles

O sad for me Glen Aora,
Where I have friends no more,
For lowly lie the rafters,
And the lintels of the door.
The friends are all departed,
The hearth-stone's black and cold,
And sturdy grows the nettle
On the place beloved of old.
O! black might be that ruin
Where my fathers dwelt so long,
And nothing hide the shame of it,
The ugliness and wrong;
The cabar and the corner-stone
Might bleach in wind and rains,
But for the gentle nettle
That took such a courtier's pains.

Here's one who has no quarrel
With the nettle thick and tall,
That hides the cheerless hearthstone
And screens the humble wall,
That clusters on the footpath
Where the children used to play,
And guards a household's sepulchre
From all who come the way.

There's deer upon the mountain,
There's sheep along the glen,
The forests hum with feather,
But where are now the men?
Here's but my mother's garden
Where soft the footsteps fall,
My folk are quite forgotten,
But the nettle's over all.
