I've got the 'I Dream of Jeannie' theme running through my head.......

..........  go on, admit it.  Now you do too ......


Da-dum, da-da--dah-dum, Da-dum, da-da--dah-dum, Da-dum, da-da--dah-dum, Dum - Bom-de-bom-bom!




I have managed at some point during the past few days, to get every male member of this household unconsciously humming this to....  (evil plot working....good!)


Jeannie (that's going to be her name now - regardless) was fun to stitch.  I started with the pale pink and fuscia outline and then went wild.  I added turquoise armbands and lazy daisy border embroidery.  I'm glad her hair worked well - a good coverage using satin stitch.  You can barely tell, but her bustier has fringie bits on it and she has gold bangles, anklets, and waistband.  There is a bead on her headband and her gold necklace has a purple bead.  She even has toe rings!!!


(Would you believe - The Bangles "Walk like an Egyptian" is playing in the background as I type this !!)


I thought her pantaloons required sparkle, so added pale, pale blue beads, and also adding them to her waistband.  Gold beads set the tambourine off perfectly.  I knew that I had to set her down, otherwise I could have gone overboard with decorations.  Now I'm moving onto another quick stitchery before I start Week 1 - Cats again on Wednesday.
