The last two months have been… Well. Kind of heretic, as I scramble with balancing work while my dad is trying to find out what is wrong with him, so I’ve been quite a bit out of it.

Which is exactly why, when Lisa posted her reminder on Facebook, The first word that came to mind was ‘well’.

The second word was ‘SHIT !’

Needless to say, I had nothing done and about six hours to do something. For someone who is usually done a week in advance, this was a little terrifying. I also got red beads, and red is not a color I use often.


I think I managed to do justice to Shelley’s adorable little owl.

I seem to be in a tassel mood lately…

Enjoy, and please visit everyone else, too !
