Tuesday I went to the Beehive Luncheon and silent auction given by and for the faculty wives' club as a fund-raiser, the funds going to financial aid for students. It's always beautifully done and lots of fun. I search the tables of donated goods for dragons. No luck this year, but I am still gloating over my find of last year, this slightly enlarged embroidery, so fine that one almost needs a magnifying glass to guarantee that it is embroidered and not painted. It is mouinted in a free-standing mahogany stand that enables one to look at both sides of it. The other side is equally finished and perfect. But what do I mean by the "other" side, when either could be the "right" side? It's worked on very fine gauze, translucent.
