staycation


Today feels like an extension of the really busy day I had yesterday.These new threads got washed, sun-dried and re-wound during the game.

For no other reason than my arm got tired at thirteen, each one has thirteen+ yards of hand dyed Red Heart #10 crochet thread, mercerized cotton. I think it's the "mercerized" part that makes the dye take so easily. I learned not to poke or move these around too much one the dye was applied or colors got muddy but even the muddy ones are beauties.


I also pulled two UFOs from the hand basket and started in on them. My gator head symbol is starting to look distinctly wolfish.

I jumped off the cliff with getting my main website reorganized for a major project coming up. There's nothing more annoying than a website that is under construction, but this will have to do for a minute.


I also joined a local writing group. Push has come to shove so I had better get busy. Part of the agenda is getting up in front of a group of total strangers (with knives) and reading four pages of your work. My heart is in my throat just writing those words.

The other writers have all been there, and may still be there. If they're not kind, screw 'em.

I don't think I'd trust "kind" for a minute. I'd like them to narrow their eyes at me and sit back in their chairs. Maybe mutter imprecations under their breath.

You are a true inspiration! I have been a closet writer for years, but never had the guts to actually own up to it in front of a group! I want to hear every juicy detail, in color!
