The Mock Turtle and the Gryphon #2

One for the embroiderers... Appropriate, since the Mock Turtle's tale went around and around in verbal curlicues.

What a fantastic image - I love that spindle-like thing that the floss is wound around - is it something specific to embroidery? I recently bought a similar looking one, I thought it was a needle case (it unscrews) but needles don't fit. (?)

but I like the idea that lessons are called lessons because they "lessen" in duration. That's not true, is it?--I just like the fact that it sounds reasonable. haha.
.......embroidery suits the mock turtle too!

Ger- the penguin/clown looked as if he wanted to be a showman but couldn't quite carry it off. But I may be projecting.

Love the imperial colour and the embedded memory of all those little molluscs.

I wonder what (mock) turtle soup tastes like? Apparently giant tortoises are the most delicious meat known to man.Useless bit of information #543
