Eve Maler does needlepoint during standards meetings!
Samplers have a long tradition of teaching moral lessons to the young while presumably guarding them from the dangers posed by idle hands.
Open source has taught me that a person with a talent is an opportunity. Done right it’s fun for everybody. I suggested what the world needed some of the design principles of the Internet rendered in cross point.
Might be a best practice if standards authors were required to execute some samplers first.
Eve made that and gave it to Lauren Wood; who hopefully can display it regularly to those in need.
Curiously, my wife just acquired some very nice antique lace. Lucky her!
