I worked on some more tea cup candles, this one is a gift a friend wants to give to a fellow tea lover. When I first poured the melted wax inside, it looked exactly like a cup of hot tea:
Then it hardened and looked a little like I'd put some creamer in it:
I also came very close to completing a baby blanket I've been working on for months. I finished all the squares, and just have to connect them and crochet a border.
It's taken me such a long time because I had to completely redo it from the original pattern. It was a "circle to squares" pattern, and I completely botched it and had to redo it.
Luckily some lovely ladies in a crochet forum told me what I was doing wrong.
Unravelling and starting over. Story of my life. Ha!
It took me too long to do the original pattern, so I reverted back to my old tried-and-true granny squares. If I'd tried to do the other one it would have taken me a lot longer, and the child is already five months old as it is! She'd be a teenager by the time I was done.
Since it was bit cooler than usual (even in SoCal) I defrosted some of Ralph's delicious pozole leftover from the holidays. This soup/stew is perfect for a cold night and it freezes beautifully. (That reminds me of a scene from Steel Magnolias.)
I also finally watched Gone Girl, which I liked, but not as much as the book. In both, however, I was left shaking my head, thinking, "Man, these people are psychotic!!"
Hope everyone else had a nice weekend.
