I thought I was for a change on time for this challenge. Well, not quite. What do Rachel and Theresa say: "If you bound off your lace RIGHT NOW - what could it be used for?I" and "Please exercise due diligence when dealing with many tiny unbound stitches". Unfortunately, my teammate DFS (Diamond Fantasy scarf) showed expeditious development and had to be unleashed already.
However, we are both happy to show you what kind of adventures are awaiting a young lace scarf on his first steps into the big wide world. Travelling it will be!
First, check out the car. DFS tested out the ride on top of the car and while he,
nose edges in the wind and rollicking shouting out 'Mama, I can surf on a car', lace-mama makes a note to herself, 'roof rack stays in garage'.
While DFS is making friends with travel companions ('Hi, camping stool, how are you?') it was obvious to me that his hearty hug was not only an emotionally strong one.
Yes, the blue guy with all the holes to your right could be your cousin.
(HE's staying home, though,
Since nobody is throwing a pretty young but damp lace scarf into a cooling box together with dead fish, he has to dry properly after having his 'dip'.
DFS here admiring our new house tent. The suspense of building it up for the first time is almost killing him...
I think he could be of great support drying smoothly just over here.
Ah, I'm looking forward to our trip. Unfortunately, it had to be postponed for a week because the weather was too bad.
No - please no sympathy NOW. That's actually the current weather situation, meaning good enough to leave town. BUT.. on the right picture you can see that this s in fact pretty much the average Icelandic summer weather!
Okay, I am off now for a week and in case you were seriously scared: Don't call the lace-rights activists. This was just a dry run.
No lace was physically harmed! I kindly offered unlimited refreshments after the photoshoot, while we discussed DFS talent for acting. This was followed by a light stretching excercise and some acupuncture treatment. I am confident, this will prevent any psychological damage in the long run and compensate for missing a real rainy outdoor adventure.
