What the New Thread Will Do!
I won. I simply took the thread and canvas to Wednesday Witches with me. She couldn't do anything about it.
Here's what I have so far.
My friend Joan discovered that there were two skeins of each kind of the tie dyed thread. Which can't be all bad if you want to make a rug and an afghan to match...
The old stuff I had was breaking down. I shattered a couple of the hands that I made the other night. It absolutely is not supposed to do that. Being so old, I am not surprised.
Anyway, I told Tessie that, if she didn't behave, I was going to make a mini me. She told me to go ahead. I would only be five inches high and she could take me on, since she is 5 1/2" high... She forgot and I reminded her, that I am the one making it and if I decided to go ahead with it, I could make me 6" high and very strong! Strangely enough, she quieted down and wandered off somewhere. To someplace where I wasn't... I win!
She has been squirreling away nuts by the cheeks full and this morning I saw her going over the back fence with a big hunk of lettuce, hanging from her mouth... Feeding babies or just very hungry? We shall see in a week or so.
I am going back to work on the rug some more... Yes. I know. I should finish all of the old rugs before starting something new... Oh well. What is done. Is done. Or at least it's started.
Back to stitching. See you tomorrow.
