2011!

HAPPY
NEW
YEAR!
Did you know..........that the number
2011
is a "prime number"?
Long ago in some math class I am sure that I learned about prime numbers but for some reason, I didn't let it register until I was 53 and my son pointed out that it was a prime number. Now that year that I was 53 was a pretty good year so, maybe 2011 will also be a pretty good year. Let's hope so!! Here's wishing all of you Peace, Joy, and Love in the coming year! Oh, and since most of you are quilters that read this......I wish you lots of fabric and may all your projects be finished by the end of the year. Riiiiiiighhhhhhhtttttttt. :-)
And if you'd like to learn more about "Prime Numbers",

Today, I'm going to be working on a project that I'll share with all of you real sooooooooonnnn!
Have a great New Year's Day!
Sandi

I hope your wish about this year comes true for all of us and our families. Happy 2011 to all! (And what a LAUGH....that all my unfinished projects should get done before 2012 rolls around!)

A happy and prosperous new year to you and your loved ones!

It is a funny thing ... few days ago we were explaining prime numbers to our daughter (who's only seven but quite a smart and curious little creature even if I say so myself ;-) ) and we googled it (as one usually does) for some fun illustrations of the concept. Well, surprise surprise ... we learned something we did not know. A polish mathematician Ulam while being bored at a meeting started doodling on a page. Being a mathematician, he started writing numbers in a spiral (Ulam's spiral they call it now). then he circled the prime numbers and lo and behold - a pattern emerged! The beauty of math, really. You can see an illustration of the pattern here:

Hope it pleases your visual senses, I find it beautiful. Take care!

Oh, I do hope that your prime number theory works out--a lot of us could benefit from "a good year"!
