Do I dare go to Target today? Yes, I must. I need to color my hair before my trip on Wednesday. So I need some #9 Natural Blonde (yeah, right). Let's hopeTarget isn't slammed.
I worked on the left side tree of The Owl and the Pussycat. The trunk is covered in spangles. You need a beading size needle to go through the spangles' holes. Each spangle has three stitches to hold it down.
I wore a hole in my finger putting on spangles and I'm not even done yet. I started the right side tree. It's easier as Italian mesh ribbon covers its trunk. I got a few pieces of purl pearl put on too. I know it doesn't look like I did much but handwork like this takes forever.
This piece is starting to look close to being done. Hey, I found the mica moon that I couldn't find a while back. And I found the guitar that will go in the hands of the owl.
I decided to add more bullion knots to the Queen's hair before I put the loops on. I tried it on one side and it looks good.
I got some eggnog made from coconut milk. It's good! Especially for the lactose intolerant. I saw a video of Martha Stewart making candied orange peel and I want to try it her way. It takes a long time though. Then I also saw a recipe for cinnamon and sugar pretzels (Pampered Chef). I want to try that too. There are just too many good things to eat this time of year.
