The Case of the Missing, Uh, Anatomically Correct Crocheted Craft
A couple of weeks ago, Aunt B of Tiny Cat Pants made me a present [images and post titles throughout may be NSFW]. It is a crocheted representation of the vulva. No, seriously, and I love crafty stuff like this, as evidenced by my past posts on Naomi’s condom amulets and the expanded project, The Nipple Project, and DIY knit prostheses for women who have undergone mastectomy. Something about repurposing traditional female crafts in this way just gives me a big chuckle.
In any case, B sent it to me through interoffice mail. Two weeks ago. And it has not arrived. For the first week, I was willing to chalk it up to bureaucratic inefficiency. By now, though, B suspects that something else has happened, and lists some amusing possibilities, like, “Maybe it’s sitting in a lawyer’s office somewhere as they ponder the sexual-harassment potential.” I think maybe it’s just becoming the next Flat Stanley. A commenter suggested posting “Lost” signs, complete with images. Heh. 🙂
Seriously, if you desire such a thing to the extent that you’re willing to purloin it from interoffice mail, B posted instructions on how to make your own, so you have no excuse. I bet she’d even make you one if you asked her nicely.
