He tasks me
This is my white whale.
After sewing on 30+ beads per side and sewing on the belly of the beast, I began to crochet the scales along the spine thus attaching the sides to each other and simultaneously stuff the beast, when I heard the soft ping of beads hitting the floor. Son of a beast!!!
My suggestion to the husband that he learn how to sew on beads fell on deaf ears. It is after all a silly hat for him and his Iaido sword buds. Yeah, he requested that I make more than one hat.
On the school count down - 16 more days until it starts! Then I can tackle the other silly hats in peace.
