Meme du Jour

6 weird things about me…

1. Very few people knew my Mother’s nickname for me was Budgie.

me/Budgie @1yo

2. I have read the 5th Harry Potter book 5 times.

3. I drive a 1991 Jeep Wrangler. It has 52,000 miles. I intend to drive it until it’s dust.

4. For the life of me, I cannot tell a joke with a punchline, but give me 10 minutes and I could maybe make you laugh anyways. (Have you heard the one about my Great Aunt Mary, who in the middle of a brutal Midwest winter many years ago, while the entire family was wasting away from extreme rural Cabin Fever, built a sand box for her boys so they would have Something To Do. It took up most of the Living Room.)

5. I used to keep a short pair of drumsticks in my work truck so when I was stuck in traffic, sans passengers, I could drum on the steering wheel or dashboard, while listening to the radio.

6. I love to lie in bed in the wee morning hours and wiggle my toes back and forth in my socks.

gettin’ the fash on over here…


Fancy. Party. Shell.

The thin shiny ribbon parts blow-up every few inches with a gold glittery puff. Personal fireworks so to speak.

After it’s washed, they lay pretty flat, so there’s no invasion of the bobbles look to this just texture –

Hopefully, I’ll have enough yarn (and I use that term so loosely) to finish this – it is going fast but seems to eat up the yardage much quicker than the company line would suggest.

I’m aiming for a deep-scoop neck shell – with a very thin edge of gold (leftovers form another project) to finish the edge. I’ll scoop out the back to save yarn too – it’s depth TBD by the yardage count towards the end of the project. OH, to live dangerously…
