"But, really, why does anyone create? You feel a... a restlessness inside, a need to make something new, something no one has ever seen before. You want to add to the beauty and the richness of the world with a gift, an offering that is uniquely yours. It's an act of selfishness and generosity, all rolled into one."

Keeping up with the TIAS

I did actually tat days 13 and 14 when they were released, but haven't gotten around to posting them till now.

Presumably that row of split rings will straighten out after we turn the corner and join another row to them. It's still looking boat-like, but it must be a flat-bottomed one since there are no joining picots on the bottom row of split rings. Of course, there's still plenty of time for Jane to surprise us!

I haven't really done any other tatting this week. Too busy with work-- I had to go to a 4 hour staff meeting on my day "off". And maybe 30 minutes of that actually pertained to me. Still, it will be a nice paycheck.

Squijum's biopsy results came back yesterday. The vet's original diagnosis was correct. It is definitely allergies. Now it's just a matter of finding a treatment that he will respond to. We're going to try prednisolone next. It comes in a gel that is absorbed through the skin; you apply it to the inside of the ear where he can't lick it off. The pharmacy should have it ready today, and hopefully he won't mind it too much.

  1. Hey, Squijum ,
    Lick that stuff she outs in your ear, and then lick her thread- stuff! That could be fun, you know...her reaction! Good entertainment for you!
    Happy Valentine's Day, Pal.
