A sword never kills anybody; it is a tool in the killer's hand. Lucius Annaeus Seneca
UPDATE: TY fell on the wet golf course and dislocated his shoulder yesterday. Has a script for PT to see if that fixes it and he is banned from golf until (are ya ready?)... December. shoot me now He didn't sleep all night from the pain and took a Tylenol PM as he got on the plane. I swear he's lucky he didn't get arrested for drunk and disorderly as he staggered off, one armed and miserable. I don't envy whoever had to sit next to him, but he is now sleeping it off and probably will be out the rest of the day. And oh yeah, I only got a quart of PVA, not a gallon. Also bought some new pretty papers and ran like hell to get them in the car between the raindrops. But we're home now and everybody is asleep but me, I apparently drew first watch. So I'm gonna knit over the snoring- its a very small house. Sigh
I have to get the black quilt on the wall for a good cleaning- the black fabric is sticky apparently and evey piece of lint in south FLorida is now fluffing itself onto it. I hope a good workover with blue painters tape will help, but it may take the more drastic damp-towel approach. NOT a good sign for future usefulness. Meanwhile the Twins are almost finished being bound. I sewed the sleeve on before I layered it so that's done. It just need a label and a cleanup of i's own and it is done. The only other thing on the tables is the little box which is done but I am thinking it needs a coat of varnish for protection. The papers I used are really absorbent and I'm afraid will soften up and get nicked easily. Hey, I should see what Jerry's has- I don't want to use acrylic gloss varnish because it stays very sticky. Sticky Icky.
So, here we go, you now know where to find me at any given moment today. So here are todays 'Sumpthin' From Nuthin' choices- folks who work with whatever they have lying around, illustrating the artist's need to create no matter what.
A self-declared Miniaturist, artist Jason D’Aquino creates incredibly detailed illustrations on a small scale. D’Aquino uses high-magnification goggles (like a jeweler) to assist him in creating his itsy-bitsy images and has enjoyed the challenge of seeing how small he can go with his pencil drawings. D’Aquino had a pencil in his hand since before he could walk,” He is also a world renowned tattoo artist and owns a parlor in Buffalo, NY called Leviathan Tattoo. His teeny-tiny works have been shown all over the world.
Don’t judge folks by their relatives.
Stayin' Alive, Stayin' Alive
And OK, before I go, how 'bout a gratuitous grandson picture?
They're gonna kill me for this, but it is such a great shot:
