Elk Tooth Scrim done!

By golly that's small!

not for sale at this time, maybe later (I need to use it for display for a while)

So yeah, elk teeth are definitely a viable option for scrimshaw! Granted, they are difficult. The small size, uneven surface, curved surface, hardness... but that's okay. :-) I think it makes a really neat pendant!

There is still a situation of extreme annoyance and frustration going on, which I think will be resolved by mid week. I am hoping the end will indeed justify the means. It'll make for a good story. I'll tell it by the end of the month. ;-)

There's not a lot of other news to tell. I may be dancing at the Galt Festival July 6th (evening?). I wasn't going to do it since I'm going to miss a few classes beforehand but... eh, I can at least take part in the routines that I know. I'm not totally committed to it right now and don't want to stress about it but I think I can pull it off without it being an issue. We'll see.
