History of Embroidery Samplers A sampler is a piece of embroidery that is created to show or test needle-working skill. They were especially popular in the 16th and 17th centuries. For many years, in England and America, needlework was an important part of a woman’s education. Women were expected to be able to take care of a home, and part of that included repairing clothes and linens. As they learned to stitch, either in schools or from their female family members, girls would make samplers to show off their needleworking skills. At first, the samplers might contain letters, numbers and different kinds of stitching. In a home, women often marked their linens with their initials and a number. These marking samplers proved that they mastered this skill. Those with more advanced skills could make decorative samplers. These could contain intricate and beautiful pictures or patterns. Families might frame and display these samplers in the home to show off their daughter’s skill to potential husbands. • Samplers could take hundreds of hours to complete. They represented patience, skill and obedience • Many decorative samplers were religious scenes. • Samplers were often on silk or linen. • Women would put new stitches that they learned in their sampler. They could look at it later to remember the stitch. • Wealthy families would send their daughters to schools run by other women. They would learn knitting, sewing and sampler-making. • Some of the most complicated samplers came from women who attended these schools. • Women would sign their samplers with their name, age and the date the sampler was completed. • Today, surviving samplers are displayed in museums. • Sampler comes from the French word essamplaire, which means a kind of work to be copied. • The earliest known sampler made in America is from 1645. It was created by Loara Standish, who lived in the Plymouth colony. 2018 7

Character Bear says: LET’S HAVE FUN WITH SCIENCE! Hello Summer! Activity: Make a Fistful of Slime! a. What You Need: Bowl; Measuring cups; Water; Cornstarch; Food coloring (optional) and Resealable plastic bag b. What You Do: i. Pour 1/3 cup of water into the bowl. If you want to add food coloring, drip five drops into the water. ii. Measure ¾ cup of cornstarch and begin sprinkling it into the water, a little at a time, until the measuring cup is empty. iii. Let the concoction stand for three or four minutes. iv. Now reach a hand (or both!) into the concoction and press the slime into a hard ball. Open your hand and watch and feel the ball return to its liquid state! v. Store your slime in a resealable bag. (Never pour slime down the drain. If you need to discard it, put it in the trash.) c. Why it Works: Slime is a polymer (a natural or man-made compound made of long chains of identical molecules called monomers). It’s also a “non- Newtonian fluid.” That means it breaks the rules that scientist Isaac Newton wrote saying a liquid moves and acts the same whether you’re squeezing it, holding it, or just observing it. How does it do it? Cross-links of molecules and the right proportion of ingredients! Activity: Exploding Marshmallows! Does your child ask questions about the magical mystery microwave? Now you a. What You Need: can show her how and Marshmallows; Plate; Microwave oven and Bar of soap (optional) why it works, while demonstrating just how b. What You Do: strangely foods can behave while inside the crazy cooker. i. Make sure you supervise your child doing this experiment and explain that he always need permission if he wants to use appliances in unusual ways. ii. Have your child place a marshmallow on a plate in a microwave. Turn the microwave on for 30 seconds. Watch what happens. iii. Change the time you microwave the marshmallow and see what happens. Be careful: the marshmallow will be very hot when done. iv. Repeat this experiment with a bar of soap. The microwave will smell like soap after you finish. But not forever. c. What’s Going ON?: Microwaves have a unique property that makes them useful for cooking – the ability to excite water molecules. Microwaves cause water molecules in food to spin. As the molecules spin faster, they heat up. The hot water molecules then cause the food to heat up. When things heat up, they expand. As the marshmallow heats up, the tiny bubbles of moist air trapped inside grow, and the marshmallow gets big – very big. Now that your child knows this, ask him these questions: What did you see on the surface of the marshmallow after it was heated? Why do you think it only reached a certain size? Soon he’ll be guessing how all the appliances work! Character Education is supported by the Cumberland County Schools’ Counseling Department and the Safe and Drug Free Schools Grant.

Steamingor sautéing vegetables might be among the most popular ways to cookveggies, but grillmasters know that it’s not just main dishes that taste greatwhen cooked over an open flame. As the following recipe for “CharredGreen Beans with Lemon Verbena Pesto” from Karen Adler and JudithFertig’s “The Gardener & The Grill” (Running Press) can attest, grilledvegetables make for simple yet satisfying side dishes.GREEN BEANS11⁄2 pounds slender green beans2 teaspoons olive oilLEMON VERBENA PESTO1 cup fresh lemon verbena leaves (substitute fresh lemon balm leaves)2 garlic cloves1⁄4 cup grated Parmesan cheese1⁄4 cup pine nuts or English walnuts1⁄2 cup olive oil Fine kosher or sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste1. Prepare a hot fire in your grill.2. Toss the beans with olive oil and place in a perforated grill basket or wok set on a baking sheet.3. For the Lemon Verbena Pesto, combine the lemon verbena, garlic, cheese and nuts in a food processor and pulse to puree. Slowly add the olive oil with the processor running until the mixture thickens and emulsifies, about 1 minute. Season to taste with salt and pepper. The pesto will keep in the refrigerator for seven to 10 days, or it may be frozen for up to three months.4. Place the grill wok or basket directly over the fire and stir- grill, tossing the beans with wooden paddles or grill spatulas until crisp-tender, about 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer the grilled beans to a large bowl and toss with about 1⁄4 cup of the Lemon Verbena Pesto or to taste.JULY 2018 19

This show should make lots of parents happy. the character Applejack. My Little Pony has put a ton of effort and care put She is an important into each episode. I’m impressed with this show. character in every Oftentimes in shows, filler episodes are boring, and they make you wish you were watching a story-driven episode. This isn’t the case with this DVD. My Little Pony has some really interesting characters. The main cast consists of six characters, or “The Mane 6” as they’re often referred to outside the show. I like when shows have a large cast of recurring characters that really make their world feel real. It helps world-building and character dynamics. As I mentioned, these episodes focus mainly on one character, Applejack, but sometimes the other members of The Mane 6 share the spotlight. If you like Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash and Rarity, then you will love this series because they are highly featured. My main issue is that, ironically, my favorite member of The Mane 6, Fluttershy, isn’t in any of these episodes. I know the episodes are about Applejack, but from what I’ve seen of recent My Little Pony episodes, Fluttershy is the most underdeveloped of the group. I give this DVD 3 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 4 to 12. The DVD is available now.22 JULY 2018
