I finished up this motif last night. Margaret R refers to this as tatting in a comment. Margaret. I never did quite 'get' the tatting thing, but have found ways of making it look almost like tatting. This motif, however uses a bullion stitch, with between 20-30 wraps for the scalloped edging.
Now, there is a REALLY BAD SMELL in my house somewhere. in the kitchen/ living area. I have moved everything that can be moved - oven, fridge, dishwasher, washing machine. Checked all the drawers, cupboards and lunchboxes. HELP, where is the worst place you have found really bad stuff!!! Its is getting so overpowering that I can't stay in the kitchen long. I am feeling nauseous sitting here.
And for my second drama of the day. I watched a car being stolen today!! I didn't know it was being stolen at the time, but I am completely shocked by the brazeness (is that a word) of this man ( read as complete bastard). We were walking back to the car after soccer photos today, and I noticed the coaches 6yr old daughter at her mums car. This guy was almost up to her, and I heard him say, "I'll help you with that". She was trying to get the keys out of the door. He got into the car closed the door and screamed out of the car park. The moment I realised that this wasn't quite right was when he didn't wait for her to move out of the way. I absolutely beleive he would of run her over if she was in the way. The thing that gets me is that he looked me right in the eye before getting in the car. This was obviously a pre meditated ,not to jack Pam's car, but a car, and they just got lucky with a little girl and car keys. As soon as this car was out of the carpark, another one left after it.
I'll be off to the police station tomorrow to do a statement. I got a really good look at this guy, and I hope the next time I see him is in court.
