Have you ever had one of those days? You know, where nothing is going quite right. It seemed like everything I tried to do, ended up wrong or on the floor. When I couldn't even pick up pins without sending them flying across the room, I really knew NOT to touch that rotary cutter like planned. (I did get some of the cleaning and clearing done without injury to self or furkids)
Since I kept knocking this particular tote off the shelf (because it was so over stuffed and not really sitting on the shelf just right), I figured I better really take care of it. This is my string tote. Yeah, there is a tote under that pile - somewhere.
I pulled out one of the 100 old phone books (well, not that many) and started to piece those strings. NO pins, NO rotary, NO heavy thinking needed! Just my little snips (which did get dropped on the floor a few times) and a few bobbins wound - OFF WE WENT. I got 30 ready for their corners - tomorrow. They will be trimmed down to 6.5" - when I can trust myself with that rotary cutter.
The trip to the Vet at least was uneventful. Moe did cry like a baby the trip there and home - luckily it is only a mile up the road. He didn't try any escapes as there were a lot of woofies - noisy woofies - big woofies. He decided to sit in my lap while in the room - Mom protecting him. All was good and quick (the Vet was amazed at how big his teeth and claws are) and home we went.
Today may be another NO rotary day, too
