No, we are in agreement there.  It sounds like the more common bee-sting
allergy.  I have lots of wasps here, but they're not agressive, and I
have had a live-and-let-live policy with them for nearly 30 years.
They're paper wasps and do keep down some harmful insects.  My one rule
is that they may not build a nest over a doorway or on the mailbox.  So
I sometimes remove a nest - veeeerrrrrrryyyy carefully.  So far, knock
wood, we have not had a stinging encounter.

I do have a blue denim dress that seems to drive one bee crazy - with
love.  It makes it a bit difficult to sit on the patio in that dress.
He hasn't been nasty, but he keeps searching for the pollen.

You know,  Kate, you are supposed to take care when outdoors, those wasps
are nasty things.

I wasn't outside!  The horrible monster was in the living room and
attacked me as I came through the door!  It drilled through me trousers
to me leg, too, so I feel REALLY hard done by!

The one that drilled my waist in the summer was in the dining room...
The ones outside that rivalled the deer for our picnic at Knole in
August were less problem...  The deer climbed up my back and over me to
get the cucumber, the wasps just buzzed about at the fruit and
champagne, and we battet any really pesky one away with a plate.  I
banged the deer on the nose with a plate too, but it came back!  Alan
had to lift it off me and flap his jacket at it to get it to leave us alone!

I really don't know which is more of a pest: deer or wasps!  :D

OT: wasp stings; Re: Not using Gutermann sewing thread?
I suppose we were lucky none of those on the back porch got inside,
considering how many times the door is opened, especially when DS uses the
grill.   We don't picnic where deer are, but if we did, that sounds like
something that would happen to me.  I'm glad the wound is healing properly.

Oh, a big turkey can be a scary thing!  And the are BIG!  But the birds
I'm never too sure about are white peacocks...  Look like ghost birds
and scream like children being murdered!

Re: OT: wasp stings; Re: Not using Gutermann sewing thread?
Peacocks always sound like a woman being murdered/strangled to me. I
once owned a house where the neighbors behind me had sizable acreage,
and fruit groves, and kept those bloody birds in the groves.. They
used to "scream" in the night, and until I found out what the source
of the horrendus screams were, I was quite disquieted and upset.

Both.  I used to live in a place where someone had some peahens,
possibly some peacocks, too, but the peahens would get on the roof below
my bedroom window and scream.  I would come flying out of that bed in
the post-dawn light, looking for the poor woman.  Only to see a peahen
strutting across the roof.

 they're awfully expensive.
i have a neighbor who really should not have moved from the
city to the country. they rarely come outside except to go to
their car (they have a lawn service for the yard work). they
put up huge megawatt streetlights all around the house first
thing when they moved in. apparently they think there are
wolves in the woods behind their house. there's a hundred feet
of town land & 20 acres of my land behind their house. there
are a few deer out there, & squirrels & a porcupine, possibly
a rare coyote passing through. no wolves. no bears. nothing
scary. so i thought a few peafowl might liven things up...

Deer outweigh the wasps.

For wasps in the house, you might get a wasp trap, and talk Alan into
finding out if there is a nest somewhere or a way they're getting in.
If you have a fireplace, that's a good place to start looking.

The antique glass wasp traps are being reproduced and used, though I
think it would be lovely to have a real antique one.  ;-)

Do take care of yourself, and I hope you get up and moving around soon.

As far as I am aware, Dual Duty was a nasty hand quilting thread, not
intended for garment use.

Made here in the UK, but sent all over the world.

Re: Not using Gutermann sewing thread?
Coats Dual Duty is a line of general sewing thread, not a hand
quilting thread.

Re: Not using Gutermann sewing thread?
I use C & C, Mettler's, Guttermann, and YLI, depends upon the project
and fabric.
I, too, Loathe Dual Duty....ugh. i gotta be reeaaall despirate to use
D/D.

You girls get better! I know about the wasp stings....my DD is
allergic to mosquitoes of all things...we usually have a trip to the
Emergency room at least once a summer. Cellulitis is no joke, i had it
in both legs two years ago. now have to wear the "granny"
stockings....so warm in summer. but poor circulation runs in the
family.

Re: Not using Gutermann sewing thread?
I wear these as well (compression hose), but my latest ones are black,
and look very much like black nylons (except they do not ladder like
nylons, thank goodness).
