Peacock cat, Christmas is coming....

 This is the cat that was special-ordered a month ago. It's ready to be sent to its new home, and right on schedule!
When you start seeing Christmas ornaments for sale at Hobby Lobby, you know Christmas is............well, still months away, but that you'd better start thinking about it. The stockings I've been making have used all my tiny light charms, so I bought some more. You can buy some that are about twice as big as these that are tiny ornaments. The ones I like are strung on gold cord, meant to be used as garland for a small tree. And if you're as practical as I am, you will note that you can untie each little light charm and voila! You not only have 12 tiny light charms, you have a yard and a half of gold cord that is thin enough to be threaded in a chenille needle and used as embroidery thread in Fool's Gold work! Hey, it only took me about 15 minutes to untie all those little knots....yeah, I know, I need to get a life.

Doesn't everyone untie the knots to save the cord for other projects? Yeah, I guess I need to get a life too. lol
