Now, you need to know that Isdihara and I met at Palmetto Tat Days 2010 and instantly bonded. I mean right that second. Since then, we've spent way too much time on the phone giggling about kids and tatting and life and husbands and silliness, though not necessarily in that order. She and I share a wicked sense of humor. (Ask her sometime about why her DH sometimes yells "Sanctuary!")
Isdihara had gotten some of the new colors of Lizbeth thread. And she shared!
See? All the new variegated colors, in size 40. I feel rich! The Sea Island Citrus is especially pretty. I like the Raspberry Frappe and the Purple Iris Fusion too. Hmm - what to make...
I'm almost through with round 13 of the Pineapple Heaven doily. I took this pic a couple of days ago - the pineapples are really showing through. And round 14 is on the last page of the pattern (16 rounds). The end is near...
Curly is doing better, and is working some. He is continuing to live in the neighborhood, and seems to be taking his meds to good effect. Whew.
Curly loves cats, and he just got this tiny,tiny kitten. I hope he can manage the kitty - they tend to be more money than teens are aware of. But the kitty seems sweet, and it helps Curly to have a creature.
We had some sad news this week. I'm not going to be an aunt again, not in October. My SIL's pregnancy did not go as planned. They are very sad, as you can imagine. Mom is going up on Monday to help them a bit - she does this a fair amount. (BTW - she had a great time on her trip to Barcelona!) My brother is 45 and his wife is 40, so their time is short for further children. They have a little girl, a toddler, who gives them much joy.
That's about all the news from Lake Wobegon, except for the fact that it's hellishly hot for early June. It's supposed to be 97F tomorrow, and was in the upper 90's all week. What's it going to be like in August? Ugh.

Sophie doesn't say much about the heat. She's not much good at helping me tat either - no thumbs.
