Thirteen Tentacles

I'm at it again. I'm making more jellyfish.

It's kind of a long story. It starts with me being a bad aunt. It ends with me having oodles of time last week. (Two words: student teacher.)

Anyway, I've made four bodies, and now it's time to make tentacles. I've made thirteen already...


Which is a good start. There are eight tentacles per jellyfish. I'm making four jellyfish. 8 x 4 = 32.

32 - 13 = 19.

Nineteen more tentacles to go...

Deep sigh. Why did I start this again? Oh, right. I've missed all my nephews' birthdays. Bad aunt.

  2. I agree with Alex. As for being a bad aunt, I have a blackbelt in that. ~shakes head~ I have eleven nieces and nephews for which we've done little for many years. Just couldn't afford oodles of gifts after a while. And we haven't attended a single graduation because I didn't want to start a trend or let one kid down over another. Attending my husband's college graduation was the last one for me. Anyway, forgive my rambling. ~grin~ Take care!

    1. They live out of state for me now, so I highly doubt I'll be making their graduations.

    2. We live hours away, too. That added to the reasons not to go.

      As for my silly rant, you made interesting points. Regarding my gym membership, weight lifting at least once a week, which I maintain, is different from other exercise. And it forces me out into the world, a necessary healthful struggle. Thank you for the input, though. And be well!

    3. Yeah, having weights would be reason enough for the gym membership.

  12. One thing I am not is an aunt. I'm an only child and,within my husband's family, I'm the only one with a child. That also means my son has no first cousins. So I will never be a bad aunt - take it as you will. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

    1. I know the whole no-first-cousin thing first-hand. (I have quasi first cousins--they have "half" and "step" qualifiers.)

  13. Those look like party streamers without the bodies! I love those colors! :)

    Sorry you missed all of your nephews birthdays. I'm not good at remembering birthdays either. :-/

  15. Your nephews didn’t even have birthday parties this year - so who’s a bad mom? - the Jellyfish will rock and the boys will be utterly thrilled!

  17. Love the tentacles. I spied an orchid over the weekend that sort of had tentacle-like petals. Very cool.

    1. Oooh. Now I'm wondering if there is an amigurumi pattern for orchids...

  18. I love the colors! You're making them something, I think that keeps you out of "bad aunt" territory.
