This post is brought to you by the letter 'S' and the number '8'.
I am a trifle obsessed with this letter, and still want to play with it, even though I have made the requisite number. It's my DD's first initial, so I have plans to recycle these into a monogram quilt for her. Next up will be the letter M, which is the start of both our middle names, so they will find a home too. I have no idea where Tonya is leading us with this, but I'm keeping my options open and trying not to overplan.
Mereth and I had a little whinge to each other about how messy this is. It just gives me the irrits, having all these threads and scraps and bits hanging about. I want to clean them all up, but I know the next letter will just make the same mess all over again. So I am trying to turn off the tidying-away gene, which is a bit of a laugh seeing as I had to train myself to be tidy in the first place! I hope I don't end up a serial messer because of this project.....
It's too warm for long pants, and that irritates me too. It's beautiful weather, the air is soft and warm and the sunshine is golden. Unfortunately there are also clouds of early mosquitos, and I haven't got my warm weather clothes out yet, so I'm 10° too warm and that makes me cranky.
Thanks to an anonymous tip from Mary I now know how to make degree symbols
"Type ALT 0176 (hold down ALT key and use the numbers to the side of your keyboard)"

1°2°3°4°5°6°7°Thanks awfully, I used to know this and a lot more, but it's vanished from the memory banks. I need to type degree symbols a lot in my line of work, and it bugged me that I couldn't remember. And was too lazy to go find it myself.That sun is awfully bright; makes it hard for a cat to get to sleep......
