The girls and I are getting ready to leave the hubby for a few days and visit my 89 year old grandmother in Texas. Her mind is sharp, but her body is weary, so we will probably be spending a fair amount of time inside her home. I thought that it would be a great idea to bring some hooking, so I am bringing my "Sheepish" mat kit from Spruce Ridge Studios rather than lug my big rug. In anticipation, I have been cutting my wool and putting it into labeled baggies. My brilliant (or no so brilliant) idea was to be a human vacuum sealer and suck out the excess air in the baggies, so that the wool would take up the least amount of room in my luggage....BAD idea! I choked on wool dust and had a "fuzzy" feeling in my mouth for about an hour.
I should have known better, but as my mouse pad says :
But at least Trucker kept me company and demonstrated that kitties do know how to do the backstroke!
(note the wool snippets all over the carpet)
