I popped the kitty bed off the blocking form and decided it’s a bit too big. I thought a little bit smaller would be cosier for Miss Lucy, so it went through the washer one more time, and is blocking, again.
I was a bit over-zealous in my blocking the first time around. But that’s the beauty of felting — after going through another cycle in the washer, it’s at the size I want now. So tonight I’ll put the bed on the chair where the Big Booga Bag is now, and see if Lucy likes it.
So she’s had to wait another day, poor deprived little thing!
Here she is, giving her opinion of the situation.
I’m moving along on the second sleeve. This sweater will be done this week, barring any unforseen atrocities.
St. Lucia Day Gifties!
The ever-generous L-B sent me some St. Lucia Day gifties that I received on Saturday, which was, of course, St. Lucia Day. Lookie!
These are little Swedish soaps in boxes. Aren’t they cute? They have little strings so you can hang them on your Christmas tree.
It reminds me of the sorts of things my grandmother used to send me when I was a little kid.
Today is my office holiday party and I’m feeling bleah. Have a raging ear infection and really ought to have stayed home from work. But duty calls — we have a major deadline c.o.b. tomorrow, so it’s off to work I go.
With coffeecake and scones. No, originality is not one of my strong points.
