Yesterday should have been very productive. I had the time. But somehow I was very hostile toward all of my projects. I would try to start one and it would take too long (go figure, you think I'd be used to that after 20 years of tatting) or I would try to design a pair of earrings to go with my necklace and it wouldn't work when I tried it out.... so I did other things for the most part.
We had a woman call us out of the blue last week and tell me that they wanted to save some fish in their neighborhood, at an abandoned house where there was no running water for aeration in the pond anymore. Consequently, the last 2 days there have been about 10 new small additions to our koi pond. Although, sad story, 3 of them got so excited by the excessive aeration in our pond that they jumped out and died. Who knew, right? It was tragically brilliant, but we pitied them anyway. I wonder what they were thinking? "Ooooo, this air feels so nice, I think I'll jump around a bit! Wheeeeeeee! Wait, this isn't right...? I'm falling. Ouch! I don't understand! What's happening....?" Poor guys.
Bree's blog yesterday about her bookmarks (where she so graciously posted her stitch count, I was able to say to myself, I can do that! And I did. Thanks, Bree. That was the motivation I needed to save the day.
In other things, I am contemplating how to do a bracelet and earrings for the necklace I posted yesterday. Ideas? I posted on InTatters, too, so maybe someone will come to my rescue :)
Have a wonderful Thursday!
