Rather than bore anyone with the way my each part of my head hurts in its own special way, I started making my own Power of Jean Power Power Puff Bangle. I figured, “Why not? I know this stuff backwards and forwards now, sideways and upside down, right?”
And while I was still congratulating myself on how much triangle ass I was kicking, I promptly made a hilarious error. I took it out, marched on, and I guess maybe I can finish it tomorrow, or the next day, or the day after that. I’ll show you mine when I have a few more done (I’m at 2 out of 21, not very impressive so far) but for reference, this is what I’m up to, in shades of red, gold, pink, and whatever greens I can dredge up.
It’s most enjoyable, being able to just say, “I think I’ll whip out a Power Puff Bangle!” And it is also quite pleasant, thinking of Jean, and the excitement of the fact that it’s practically January, and that means I am practically freezing my ass off in a converted French stable, laughing and saying everything I know how to say in French, and going carousing in a wintry Paris. I think I’d like to drive a sleigh, eat cassoulet in a cafe, glaze root vegetables with honey and wine, and cross-stitch a sampler of swear words in fourteen languages.
So I’ll try to forget about my pounding head, my sore throat… and just think about What Bead comes next.
Praise Be, Bill comes home tomorrow. I won’t look askance at the opportunity to lay my head in his lap and let him take care of me.
If you’d like to explore your own Power of Jean Power Power Puff Bangles, you must remember that she calls them things like “3-4-1” and “3-4-4” and that all of her patterns are available for songs and whistles on her quite efficient web site.
