    I found something wonderful on Pinterest ... the Ogham alphabet! Here's a link to the site http://www.celticbritain.net/ogham.htm which is in Dutch, so you'll have to use Google translator if you want to read the description. BUT ...it looks like simple stitches to me and I think it would be a good secret way to sign your quilts! Unfortunately, it is missing a few letters that would be handy, but ... what do you think?

    I took a class from June Colburn and designed and made a 'chop' which I had digitized and use for my labels. It is my moniker - vanogay and unless you knew, it's not as easy to read - kinda like a foreign language to others. Easy for me, perhaps!!! The oompah I typed the first time was a pure typographical error - trying to type ooftah, but guess it worked in there...

    Vanogay, I hope it wasn't me! You sent me that gorgeous lace church and I never posted a photo! I promise I will as soon as I clean off the top of my dresser. It's next to the "floating Jesus" that was staring at me in the middle of the flood and I love it sooooo much~!

    Oompah! I love it! Isn't that German? I thought Greeks said Hoppa![/QUOTE]

    No K, it wasn't you - and yes, I guess oompah is German. I lived there for 4 year long, long ago, but hadn't thought of that in a very long time

    Well, I can tell you the Hillbilly version is NOT OOMPAH or OOFDAH but probably more like "Oh, Sh--!" Now I'm from Alabama so don't flame me, haha. And I don't make a habit of using nasty words as a rule but ev-e-ry now and then an OOFDAH slips out!

    A chop is a way of signing or sealing your creations - very definitely your own design. Wikipedia says "A seal, in an East Asian context, is a general name for printing stamps and impressions thereof which are used in lieu of signatures in personal documents, office paperwork, contracts, art, or any item requiring acknowledgment or authorship...The colloquial name chop, when referring to these kinds of seals, was adapted from the Hindi word chapa and from the Malay word cap[2] meaning stamp or rubber stamps." Although mine is in threads on a piece of fabric. Lesson for today.

    Vanogay and Krystyna... You two are so smart... kind of like our professors here. That secret alphabet is really neat. Oh to be a kid and write in secret notes in code again. So would this be reliving our youths?
    Bertie, never fear: Oofdah/ Oofdah isn't a nasty word. My Nana was Norwegian and had the standards of a saint and she used it. It just means something like "my goodness!"
    Lyn, I love the word Crikey! Maybe August can be Oofdah, Oompah, Crikey Month. Yay! Okay now.... What in the world would be an Oofdah, Oompah, Crikey quilt?
    Oh and Kystyna didn't get any sneak peaks of our kitchen...it was pure serendipity.

    ... My husband lets me buy all the fabric I can hide.

    Well that's a pretty cool and interesting site....but I am trying to figure out why it's in Dutch. Lol!
    i have done extensive research on my families...including me Ma and Da side () and I always tease that we are. Luebloods cause all came from Ireland excep for 2....one from Scotland and one from Denmark. But mostly 95% Irish.
    The expert's mind has no room to learn while the beginner's mind is free to know everything....

    Vanogay, that is so cool! Did you digitize for embroidery?

    Cogito, perhaps your ancestors spoke or wrote in Ogden?
