The "kinda" is because I'm working on a PhD in sociology at UNLV.  My
dissertation has a working title:  "Quilters between the revivals: the
cultural context of quilting in the 1950s and 60s".  An area we could all
use more information on, and a sense of our roots that this revival didn't
spring full grown from the Whitney/Smithsonian exhibits or the Bicentennial.
And yes, Kate, it's possible to combine, though I don't envy you doing it
with a little bitty one-- my two are 9 and 7 (minus 4 yrs for when I started
this insanity...)

Your dissertation sounds wonderful, Colleen -- will there be a place for us to
find it when you finish it?  MSM quilted all through the 50's and 60's -- in
fits and spurts.  I have no clue what happened to any of those quilts (although
knowing MSM, I suspect they all ended up as UFO's  :-)  ).

Sarah--

Thanks for the words of encouragement.  Believe me, I'll be doing a major
happy dance and letting everyone know if it gets done by Dec. 1999 like I
hope.
