and help scientists with ongoing research.
"Our ultimate goal is to build the go-to platform for documenting all the world's organisms and through doing this we hope to develop an effective way to measure Mother Nature's pulse. By encouraging the mobile masses to document their encounters with nature, we hope to build a powerful force for data collection and an important educational tool for wildlife awareness and preservation. We hope you'll support us on this mission by joining Project Noah today."
The Wall Street Journal says about Mapping Nature on Your Smartphone:
"For the developers at New York start-up Networked Organisms, smartphones are the butterfly nets of the 21st Century. Their tool, Project Noah, lets people upload photos of plants and wildlife around them, creating a map of the natural world and contributing to scientific research in the process."

I Could Use Your Help
Wouldn't It Be Great to Have Our Pre-Wound Bobbins Stored in the Spool Itself?!
Pictured above is my "mock-up" for the new type of spool.

Grounds for Sculpture
"In 1984, J. Seward Johnson, sculptor and philanthropist, envisioned a public sculpture garden and museum in Hamilton, NJ. His desire was to make contemporary sculpture as an art form more accessible and to offer people from all backgrounds the opportunity to become comfortable with contemporary art. Grounds For Sculpture was conceived as a place where audiences could experience sculpture in a familiar, accessible, and informal setting."
"Construction on the sculpture park began in 1989 on the site of the former New Jersey State Fairgrounds; Grounds For Sculpture opened to the general public in 1992. Since its inception, the park has built a collection of over 240 works, including sculptures by renowned artists Clement Meadmore, Anthony Caro, Beverly Pepper, Kiki Smith, and New Jersey sculptor George Segal. Some of the works in the collection were commissioned specifically for the sculpture park, such as Magdalena Abakanowicz’s Space of Stone and New Jersey artist Isaac Witkin’s Garden State. Work on the park and sculpture acquisitions were financed by public tax-exempt bonds and private foundations associated with founder J. Seward Johnson."

Grounds For Sculpture - Video
Here's a little video I took trying out a new camera at the Grounds for Sculpture, Hamilton, NJ. (Your view when seated outside of the restaurant.)
This place is beautiful! I will go back again when everything is in full bloom.

2. I placed the printout under my stencil plastic and traced the stars onto the plastic with a permanent market.
3. Then I used the Stencil Cutter to cut my design into the plastic. This is done by placing the plastic on a piece of glass first. Next you go over your outline in a dotted line fashion.
4. I found this design on the Internet and put it onto Microsoft Word so I could adjust it to just the size I wanted.
5. This is the Chalk Pounce used to transfer your design onto your fabric.
6. Stopper comes out and that's where the chalk goes in.
7. See, there's the chalk on the bottom.
8. A sample of the one design after it was pounced through the stencil.
