merrie60us: cannot remember her first name sorry
auntyalias: Denise dropped off
auntyalias: now I have twelve viewing
stargazer_sbpcg: NJ, your name appears "greyed out" on Luna's list...
auntyalias: it's hard to tell the lists aren't organized in alpha on the cam
bonsaikathy: Yes we keep having problems so we're backing each other up with the pix
auntyalias: I'm using auntyalias, and it's not bolded on the Yahoo Messenger Friend's list. She might have to add me
auntyalias: ah there she is
auntyalias: just added me to her Friend's list
auntyalias: now all she has to do is right click my name and pull up the cam
stargazer_sbpcg: i'll keep you posted...
auntyalias: Kathy in E. TN, roger, I copy, over

auntyalias: Denise seems to have technical difficulties and now we lost Karen
bonsaikathy: yahoo is being a real pill tonight
auntyalias: I have some hematite mix, silver and black that I'm going to surround the whole lotus flower here
auntyalias: then I'm going to do a pearl blue background before I reduce the cane
auntyalias: pretty boring stuff, so I'll get to it
bonsaikathy: Oh guess what, good Lord willing and the creek don't rise, my daughter will be coming to visit me in the middle of March for a few days
bonsaikathy: it's been over a year, I'm so excited and I can't wait
jyladams: from where?

dahs512 left the room
dahs512 joined the room

bonsaikathy: I told NJ we're backing each other up with it
merrie60us: still wrapping with hematite mix
dahs512: oh, ok...we will have it covered then
dahs512: what is she filling with
bonsaikathy: the silver black hematite mix
merrie60us: then I think she is going to cover it with blue
merrie60us: cutting edges of blue sheet even
merrie60us: not sure now
stargazer_sbpcg: blue pearl...
faye_shelton: i think she's making the background filler in blue, to round out the cane
merrie60us: sounds right
merrie60us: squeezing blue
merrie60us: made a long snake
jude: Rolling, rolling, keep them doggies rolling...er...
faye_shelton: making snakes to tuck into the crevices, eh?
merrie60us: taking flower and cutting pieces of blue snake and placing in crevices of lotus flower
dahs512: she's going for square?
merrie60us: wow it

faye_shelton: yes, it is
jill_z_q joined the room
merrie60us: My mind is just going with all the things you can do with it reduced
dahs512: Hi suzy
jill_z_q: Hihi Everyone
faye_shelton: the pic shows three flowers arranged in a square. the one on her site
faye_shelton: Hi Suzy
dahs512: she usually goes for square or round
merrie60us: maybe she is squaring it off now
merrie60us: wraps whole thng in a sheet of blue
stargazer_sbpcg: i'm still guessing triangle... hee-hee
jyladams: It is enormous!!
merrie60us: yes easier to reduce
merrie60us: in my humble opinion
auntyalias: I got to press more pearl blue
auntyalias: I'm going for round
auntyalias: as opposed to square
stargazer_sbpcg: you win!
merrie60us: so you are building it up to round it
dahs512: i have trobles reducing all shpes of canes
dahs512: but round is the easiest for me
merrie60us: it is a practiced art
merrie60us: I end up reducing them so small I can barely make the design out
jill_z_q: reducing what is that?
dahs512: making the cane smaller
merrie60us: making the cane smaller by squeezing and stretching
dahs512: reducing it
jill_z_q: I'm being sarcastic
