I have been looking at the first pattern I need to do for my Tatters Across Time Apprentice test. It calls for size 10 thread, and I don't normally have size 10. But I had recently acquired some pink size 10 crochet thread (Aunt Lydia's), and I found a similar toned blue thread from the same vendor.
I'm just playing with this. The thread is awfully soft and fuzzy. I'll have to practice to get the tension right.
A few other things....
My fig tree is going like gangbusters. It's at least 12 feet tall. Last year, the chickens roosted in it and ate a lot of the figs. This year I need to harvest the figs and do something with them, as the chickens are gone. Any suggestions?
Thursday I have to move my office to another building, back to where I used to be. The weird thing is they want me to move back to the building I'm in now (but on a different floor) in a month. Seems like a waste of time and money. I think my final cube will be horribly tiny - about four feet on a side. Really. The rumor is that the department is planning to put 168 people in cubes on half of a small floor. And how is that possible? My answer - they'll double deck the cubes and hire dwarfs. I wouldn't put it past my company.
I got a new catalog for this place and was reminded of prior orders I've made. Each of the Stooges has one of these, and sometimes I hear them screaming in flight. It's pretty funny.
I finally got a decent picture of Curly in his cap and gown. They dried out just fine. The cap's corners are a little floppy, but it's good enough. I couldn't get a picture of him clean shaven though. Mr. Fuzzy Face the Graduate.
