Quick question

I have a dilemma. I'm started to make a bracelet and changed a few things in my intended design. Now I can't decide whether to make a slave bracelet or a necklace. What do you think is more likely to be bid on at a silent auction? I need to decide before I go any further. Any thoughts?

Making a list

I've been having mini panic attacks for the last month in anticipation of September.  August and September are kind-a busy for me this year but I've been over anxious and keep trying to skip weekends in my head.  There's another 2 weekends before Palmetto Tat Days and over a month to the Fringe Tat Days.     Yet I've been trying to prematurely pack for both events.  That doesn't work very well when you need the stuff you're packing away.   So instead I've elected to make lists.  Part of the issue is that I'm flying and I only want to bring a carry-on.  So extra junk needs to stay at home.  

The other list I'm making is for purchases.  I find myself overwhelmed by the sheer volume of tatting supplies at one of these events.  There's every kind of shuttle, needle and thread.  I often get home and realise I forgot to get something.

A special visitor...

I'll give you one guess who decided to visit my yard this morning.  He's black and white and wears too much perfume.   Yep, a skunk decided to visit my yard.   My dog started barking like crazy a few minutes after I let her outside this morning.  She's a Shih Tzu so she barks a lot anyways but I went outside see why she was barking and there's a small skunk waddling through my lawn!

So at 6am this morning I'm yelling at my dog to get inside. 

There was no way I was going outside to get sprayed.  Eventually Kneessa came inside, not really sure what the fuss was about (I think she thought it was a cat).  I don't think the skunk was too threatened by the yappy dog but the screaming woman might have been irritating.  No-one got sprayed so I'm considering myself lucky.
