I was sitting at my desk at work during lunch - putting the final touches to a quiz - when I felt a slight vibration, an almost shimmy. A co-worker called out that he thought we'd just had an earthquake. Apparently we had - two of them. A 5.9 and 6.1 back to back. Technically, I suppose that means one earthquake and an aftershock - but they were recorded separately and showed up in my RSS feeds separately about 2 hours later. I doubt that anyone really felt it - my office is just a cave with a wall overstuffed with books and binders... heavy books, heavy binders. I think about it too!
I'm signed up for Sharon B's course Sumptuous Surfaces beginning next week. They sent the supply list out today - but there is no way I'm going to be able to get some of the suggested supplies ordered in by next week - so I'll just have to wing it. Sharon is recommending using neutrals for the first half of the course. I went spelunking through my stash to see what I could come up with. I was a little worried, as I'm not inclined towards buying neturals.
Think I'll be okay? The only thing I'm really missing is the linen and a few wooden beads. I'm not worried about the beads as a friend's cache is far superior than what most full fledged beading stores could produce. As for the linen, here's hoping I can use duffle :)
