Wildflowers--an infinite variety

From the myriad irrepressible varieties that color our countryside, designer Mimi Shimmin has chosen for us a basic bouquet of eight floral designs. Here and on the following pages you will see how beautifully these piquant motifs adapt to many different types of needlework. You may scatter the blossoms blithely, as we've done for the projects pictured here, or you may arrange the motifs more precisely, as we show on the next pages-- the possibilities are infinite!

Article

What are your rights with the IRS?

The hard truth is that your legal rights are more restricted with the IRS than with most other government agencies, including the FBI and your local police. On the other hand, you do have substantial rights you should know about. And, while the new tax laws have strengthened some of your rights, there is little likelihood that the tax agency's powers will be significantly diminished.

HELP! "We're trapped in a 'Basic Box' House."

I have been a faithful reader of your magazine for the past five years. Your decorating ideas are great, but unfortunately I am often at a loss when it comes to applying them to my home. You see, I live in what you might call a "basic box"-- the kind of house you see repeated all over America. I suppose if I had a million dollars, or if I lived in a rambling old house with lots of charm, I wouldn't be writing this letter. But I am writing, and my request is this: In the future would you please work on some ideas that will help me and others cope with our cookie-cutter homes? Small rooms and lack of storage are part of the problem, but what we also need are some decorating ideas (not too expensive, please) to get rid of that boxy look. Help!

How to plant a rose

Roses like sun, so pick a well-drained location that receives at least six hours of sun daily. If you have a choice between morning or afternoon sun, choose morning so the dew on the leaves will dry sooner, reducing the threat of powdery mildew and black spot.
