Still settling in

Quick update,

We are still getting settled here at the new place. I actually thought I might get to tat again finally last night....(it's been a month!)....Dear husband had a minor mishap with a neon lightbulb tube at work, and we took him to the ER just as a precaution because his eyes hurt. so I of course grabbed the first tatting project from the top of the unpacked box to take for the inevitably long wait at the ER. But, wouldn't you know, there was no wait and we were home in no time flat. Hubby's eyes are fine save one small bit of irritation, but the hospital's efficiency has prevented my return to the shuttles. Most of the boxes are unpacked but there is still some sorting and assembling of furniture to do, and we have family coming this weekend, so perhaps another day.

In other news, the Etsy shop has reopened. Jewelry and a little bit of thread is available. Dr. Vonthreadmore is chomping at the bit to get to work, I keep her locked up tightly however. She kind of leaves a mess when she is left out to wander. but don't you worry---she is well cared for. I toss in a good supply of animal crackers every few days, perhaps an egg salad sandwich now and again, and it keeps her happy.

And is anyone else freaking out because Shuttlebirds is next month? Wahoooooo!

Soon, won't be long now before you will be tatting again and Dr. Vonthreadmore is let loose to create!

Thanks for the quick update. You have been missed.

If you haven't heard, there are waves of Pop-a-Bobbin shuttles arriving around Tat Land so thread use is on an all-time high. We'll be ready when you are.

I would love to attend Shuttlebirds some day! Right now, it just doesn't work out... school is in session, and retirement is 10 years away! I wonder if I'll still be able to get on a plane by then? ; )

Have fun unpacking! We've been in our house almost 17 years, and there are still some unpacked boxes in the basement!

You have indeed been missed. And so has the dear Doctor,who is (I assume) locked in the basement.

I have finally reached the end of my beloved 'oops' green thread. I hope Dr. VTM emerges sometime soon!
