blather and mutterings

:sigh: I am so tired of dealing with stuff that should have been outgrown in HS, y'know? I'm an adult, not a teenager - and I don't want to deal with a teen until Herself gets there! :brickwall:

ANYway.....I have my first Tatted FO! It's shaped......thingy. 5 rings, all attached at the side picots, in a red/black sparklie-yarn. The yarn is a bitch to work with (it's got/is rayon content), but it's pretty. This will look good on my tree (which will be going up this weekend), and I'm happy with it. I need to work on my tension, but all in all, it looks good.

Hair: The LHC is having site problems again, so you get to read it here. :g: I slept with my hair loose last night - choir practise ran late, and I was too tired to mess with it - and woke up with NO Tangles. :surprise: It's probably because J. took over the bed, and I only had about 8" to sleep on. :wink:

Today it's up in a messy bun, held by my new silver spiral flip stick (from neuroticsmurfmom on eBay :love:). The stick was a bit tricky to figure out, but once I figured out how to insert it, I love it. It's holding my fine hair perfectly.

I inventoried the Christmas presents - I'm just about done. The kids are done, except for the stockings, immediate family is done - just need to make soap, hem the dishtowels, and buy a few cheap things and I'll be completely finished. :grin:

Haven't touched the loom since...Sunday? Monday evening? Gotta get to it tonight - I'll probably skip dinner and hit the loom instead. The shawl is coming along beautifully - I love, love love it! The weft is just *so* soft and cuddly...I can't wait to wear the finished shawl!

I'm hoping we get really good bonuses this year. I don't *need* anything in particular, but I'd like to be able to blow a couple hundred on "frivolities"; like.....a wooden tatting shuttle. New books. Couple spindles. Handdyed wool. Silk. Hair toys. Simple stuff - none of it very expensive, but nothing I'll spend the grocery money on. I'd also like to put some in savings - we need it. :fingers crossed:
