Yesterday I saw two things I have never seen before. First was two rainbows, one inside the other. The other thing I have never seen was the end of a rainbow. The smaller rainbow ended directly in front of me in a field.

Unfortunately I did not see a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, just grass where it hit the ground. All in all a very interesting vision. Unfortunately I didn't have a camera with me, but I still feel fortunate to have seen these rainbows.

Spoonflower - On Demand Fabric Printing

The Story on NPR ran a story today about start up Spoonflower that produces fabric printed on demand. Gart Davis and Stephen Fraser, formerly of Lulu and Stephen's wife founded the company, based on her desire for a particular design of fabric to make curtains for their home.

You can listen to the The Story on Spoonflower at this link, its the second half of the audio file.

The Story picked up the story based on the unlikeliness that someone would want to start a fabric company in NC today. But the synergy with Lulu's business model and inability to find a competitor to the service lead to the creation of the company to services a need. With over 15,000 registered users, apparently many others wanted this service as well.
