Turkey Tracks/Quilting: It’s Snowing! Again!

Turkey Tracks/Quilting:  February 25, 2015

It’s Snowing!  Again!

And, for now, it has stopped, after about five hours or so…

Here’s the view from my kitchen doors and through the windows of the lots and lots of snow we have–higher than my window, higher than my height:

Through the open door–you can get some perspective on all that white by looking at in relation to the top of the door the snow shovel, which is more than two feet off the ground:

The paths leading off the deck–I can’t see the hot tub anymore.  The stakes on the hill (you can see their tops) are five feet plus tall.

Meanwhile, I’ve been quilting, quilting.  It’s always fun to pull a quilt off the long arm and see how the quilting is working over the whole quilt for the first time:

For this very traditional quilt, I used a traditional clam shell quilting pattern done with groovy boards:

The soft green blends with the backing, which is not shown here.

These three scrappy quilts I’ve made recently are brightening up the downstairs sitting room so much.

I’m sewing down the binding on the streak of lightening quilt at night now–but am so drawn to the hand sewing project with the octagons.  Those scraps are on the yellow table.  And here’s what it’s looking like now.  I put in some side triangles last night:

I think I’ll applique this piece when it’s done–to a set of borders–so this will be the center.  But, who knows?

I think I’d like the octagons better if they were SMALLER.  But, you know I love small pieces for the most part in a quilt…

Interesting Information/Vaccines: What If HPV Does Not Cause Cervical Cancer?

Interesting Information/Vaccines:  February 25, 2015

What If HPV Does Not Cause Cervical Cancer?

A recent study has concluded that neither genetics nor an HPV infection causes cervical cancer.

That’s HUGE news.

Let’s hold our breath and see how long it takes to replicate this study (a standard practice in science) AND how long the mainstream media takes to pick up on this news.

Here’s a quote from the article:

The title of a paper recently published by McCormack et al in Molecular Cytogenetics says it all, “Individual karyotypes at the origins of cervical carcinomas.” If the findings in this paper are true, a vaccine against human papillomavirus (HPV) is extremely unlikely to protect against cervical cancer.

According to this paper neither genetic predisposition nor HPV infections are necessary for the development of cervical cancer. All cervical cancer cells investigated during the course of this study contained  new abnormal karyotypes. The clonality (genetic makeup) of these new abnormal karyotypes indicates the cervical cancers originated with these karyotypes – NOT from a virus.

At issue, of course, is the use of the UNTESTED and FAST-TRACKED vaccine Gardasil–which industry wants to inject into EVERY teenager in this country–females and males.
