i had accidentally put a silver choker i had crocheted, into some
silver liquid dip cleaner, not remembering the potato pearls that
were woven into the piece. when i remembered, i was looking at
beautiful crocheted silver, with pieces of chalk looking "things" in
it. very much not what i wanted. i removed it and rinsed the stuff
off, then tossed it into the magic kitchen drawer that hides
everything else that is just stuff.
we rescued a small puppy and as i was looking for something else i
came across the chalk choker, declared the pup royalty and wrapped it
on his neck, well it looped twice...and was still very loose. our
ridgeback apparently felt it was not a manly thing for me to have
done to the pup, and with her assistance, worked the piece off the
pup, brutus, (we had such high hopes for this one) the silver was
missing. when i found it, i had to look twice cause the chalk was
back to being pearls. frshwater pearls, just like before.
build up to close: either brutus is a magic dog and everyone can
send their chalk used to be pearls to me, who will wire crochet them
and brutus can do his thing for the 4 days he wore the necklace, then
wow, we get pearls! and brutus gets extra cookies for treat, and i
after fondling the pearls will send um back.....(i know jon is still
laughing i had he guts to write that)
or something in the oil of the dog's coat helped bring those suckers
back. brutus is a border terrier mix, most likely a doxi, has body of
border, but short little legs, front bowed to what looks like they
form a circle. he is now 7 and going strong.
