Last week, I lost my leather tracing stylus. It was as though it vaporized. I turned my little workspace upside down and inside out looking for that little tool. I’m lost without it. It is the only suitable tool I’ve got to transfer my designs from pattern to leather. Without it, I’m stuck in the water. The local Tandy is a good 45-minute drive out, and we’re still in one car. I walked the two miles to the local Hobby Lobby in the hopes that they carried them, but to no avail. Over the weekend, I bit the bullet and ran out to Tandy. There were a couple of other odds and ends that I needed anyway, so it wasn’t that big a deal. Today, I was going through my knife drawer and saw the stylus in with the blades. What the…? I have no idea how it wound up in there. Of course, I had to do a double-take and make sure it wasn’t the brand new one. But, no. No, now I have two styluses… …styli? Anyway, as the saying goes, the best way to find something that you have lost is to replace it.
