This Year's Ornament--Bees
Never got past the initial prototype. I didn't have the felt I needed. JoAnn's didn't have good colors or a large selection. They did have wonderful bee eye buttons. Then I found this painting.
Now I am ready to take some bees. More black and tan than black and bright gold.
We have eaten most of the meatballs. Have only 5 pierogi left. Still have Bundt cake. Never made any cookies. Should make some cookies.
It's snowing lightly. Riley and G are back from their daily walk. The house is cold. The lights are on as in Winter it is never really "bright" in here. I have a book I could read. Bees I could sew. The hooked rugs to repair. The charity quilt to quilt.
Plenty of things to do. I am wearing a cashmere turtleneck from Bean. Cost a few dollars as it had several holes in it. I've had it a long time. Wearing it for the first time today with a cotton turtleneck under. Itchy around the neck without the cotton layer. Off White. The grey cashmere sweater I wear every day was dirty and was hand washed yesterday. Still damp. I wash my cashmere in Trader Joe's Citrus Bodywash Liquid. With a squirt of hair conditioner in the same product line. I used the shampoo from this line to wash sweaters until they stopped making it. A TJ's employee said she thought the shampoo and body wash were exactly the same.
Treat cashmere just like my hair. Something gentle that rinses out to squeaky clean.
I may need to add a thin down vest to my indoor clothing.
