The topic: Crafty stuff


As I mentioned in an earlier entry, I got the craft stuff done.  I started on this when Katrina was just a tropical storm.  I spent late nights watching the storm news and getting my craft ducks in a row. 

By last Sunday, I’d made a total of two of these things.  And I wasn’t really happy with the second one.  I told Brian I was just going to quit.  I have some store bought items like this and I’d study them to try to see how a certain step was done and I just couldn’t see it.  I perused books at Michael’s craft store, even bought one that had instructions, a 101 type of book, but there was nothing there that explained how this was done.

It was just more work than I wanted to do. 

When I was whining to Brian about it, it hit me what I may have been doing wrong. It was so clear.  I don’t know why this wasn’t addressed in the how to books, it wasn’t an obvious answer.  So, I started on the other ones and by late yesterday afternoon, I’d gotten all fifteen of them done, including redoing the second one.

I got an awful lot of superglue on my fingers, pulling superglued fingers apart isn’t one of my favorite things.  And the superglue affected how I worked because I didn’t have much feeling in my fingertips.  That stiff coating didn’t help.
