Sigyn and the Tiny Shinies

Our second stop in the Big City to the South is Spice Shop Number Two.  We have managed to secure a parking spot right in front of the establishment!

Which appears to have been de-establishedSo sorry, human male!  Looks like you will have to order your urfa chilies online from now on.  You will have to console yourself with a trip to the Purveyor of Pens, which is fortuitously just in the next block.

Sigyn and the human female are taking this opportunity to have a good snoop in the bead shop which is next door to the defunct spicery.

Now, keep in mind the human female does not need any more beads.  She has bags and boxes and jars and strings and hanks of beads.  She and Sigyn must be part magpie, though, because it has taken them approximately ten seconds to dive into the broken- strand bin and start swimming.

Literally.

Though I saw to it that they did not emerge with the bronze-colored jump rings the human female initially entered the store for, they have emerged with quite a haul.  There are three strands of faceted beads with the matching larger beads that they had to sift the loose beads for.

I heard the human female counting to fifty and muttering something about “decades”.  I can only assume that that is how long it’s going to take her to actually finish the project.

Hobby Hijinks, Part IV: More Beeeads! (Sigyn Speaks)

Loki is off doing something with ants, so I thought I’d take the opportunity to look at some of the human female’s other new beads.  There are some she’s pretty excited about.

Oooh!  These are pretty!  Maroon with little golden squiggles.

They look as if they’d taste of cranberry, don’t they?

Oh, oh, OH!  Look at these!!!

Red flowers!  I didn’t know they made flower-shaped beads!   Hee hee hee!  I could wear them like a lei!

Ooo!  More flowers.  These are bigger and marbledy-pink-transparent.

More flowers!  I think the blue ones may be prettiest of all!

Eeeee!  green leafy beads!  I hope she has some left over from whatever it is she’s planning to make, because I can think of some things I’d like to use them for.

Sigyn! Are you all right?!  What’s wrong?  I could hear you shrieking from the other side of the house!”

“Oh.  That was happy-squealing, not the-human-female-has-cut-off-another-digit squealing.”

“Sigh.  Carry on.”

Hobby Hijinks, Part II: About a Billion Beads

I’m continuing to devote my efforts this week to thwarting the human female’s attempts to enjoy her hobbies.  It’s going well so far:  Her mangled thumb is still rather useless, and it is still far too wet outside for enjoyable gardening.  The weeds are happy, of course, but all of her purpose-planted vegetation is looking distinctly underwhelmed.  (Just because we received an extra 13″ of rain last year and nothing has dried out since September…)

Today I am turning my attention to her love of beads.  She has a real passion for the “tiny shinies.”

Looks like a recent order or two arrived today.  Small, plump, rattly envelopes are always exciting.  (I think they’re funniest when they contain baby rattlesnakes, but I can work with beads.)

I’m sensing a theme here.  Blue, blue, and more blue.

I must examine them carefully and see if my magic worked.

Just as I planned! The human female ordered them online, only to find upon their arrival that she already has two of these.

Oh–it appears she ordered some “findings” as well.  It tickles me no end that they call them that.  It is certainly wishful thinking on the human female’s part, as I will see to it that the first thing all these tiny bits of metal will do is lose themselves in her bead box.

Augh!  She’s got churchy bits in there!   Have a look through them if you like, Sigyn, but you know I don’t “do” that sort of thing.

I’m out of here.
