The second project that I specifically remember is the plaid bomber jacket with the sheep fur collar that I made in Home Ec and wore in the junior high fashion show. My grandmother pieced quilt tops, then had someone quilt them.
Each grandchild got one when they graduated from high school.
It was first displayed at Lirey in France in the 1350s and subsequently passed into the hands of the Dukes of Savoy.
After many journeys the shroud was finally brought to Turin in 1578 where, in 1694, it was placed in the royal chapel of Turin Cathedral in a specially designed shrine.
There are a few projects that I do distinctly remember though!
The one piece swimsuit I had to make 3 times before I got it right. The first try I got the stretch going the wrong way, the second one didn’t fit (too short), the third one I remember changed from the original yellow color to magenta and the pattern changed, but that’s about all I remember. I eventually moved on to quilting in high school and the early years of college.
Water was usually kept in a ceramic container and sprinkled on the inkstone.Even for the first investigation, there was a possibility of using radiocarbon dating to determine the age of the linen from which the shroud was woven.The size of the sample then required, however, was ~500cm, which would clearly have resulted in an unacceptable amount of damage, and it was not until the development in the 1970s of small gas-counters and accelerator-mass-spectrometry techniques (AMS), requiring samples of only a few square centimetres, that radiocarbon dating of the shroud became a real possibility. The shroud was separated from the backing cloth along its bottom left-hand edge and a strip (~10 mm x 70 mm) was cut from just above the place where a sample was previously removed in 1973 for examination.Although the term derives from the French for "calf", animal vellum can include hide from virtually any other mammal.The best quality, "uterine vellum", There has long been, however, much blurring of the boundaries between these terms.
