I’m getting ready to send off a few more queries. So far I’ve had one thanks-but-no-thanks and a deathly hush from one who said no answer in a month means no thanks. It’s about a week before the month is up, so I’m assuming it’s a rejection. I’d better get a few more queries out there.
It’s a little tricky (and time consuming) that no two agents have identical submission requirements. One wants twenty pages and no synopsis, another wants a one page synopsis and ten pages… You get the drift. I’m thinking I’ll stay away from the ‘no reply’ ones for the moment. I’d rather get a reply, even if it basically says ‘buzz off’.
In between searching for merciful-looking agents, I finished up a few tatting projects.
I was given some fancy scarf wool last year as a birthday present. I eventually finished the scarf and decided to add a few tatted butterflies.
A little mini-kaleidoscope of butterflies. The only trouble is they tend to hook onto things. I have a much more sensible scarf, but I’ll stick to the trouble-hunting butterflies.
I made this as a gift. I actually like the 100 thread, although it can be a pig. I was going along quite happily when I found a single knot in the ball thread. I have no idea how it got there and couldn’t get it loose. I ended up having to cut the thread and rejoin. It’s not obvious, but I know it’s there…
For anyone who wants to see the difference between 20 thread (the blue cross) and 100. It’s the same pattern in both crosses – the blue one is 16 cm long.
