There are things in life you expect to be easy and are hard and the opposite. I got thinking about this over the weekend. I planned to use the shells we collected on our vacation on the skirt of Sophie's first moon time dress. I thought shells would be easy to make a hole in and had a whole pile to use. After trying with a dremel tool and then the big drill, I still had no holes. My quick easy task had become daunting. I gave up on making a hole and glued on hangers. How did our ancestors do it?
