Last night, a magician friend invited me to the Magic Castle in Hollywood. This was my first time at the Castle, which features acts from several professional magicians. My favorite was George Tovar, who performed close-up magic. I sat in the front row, just a few feet from him, and I was truly amazed. However, there are hazards to sitting in the front. The guy to my left reached out his hand to test a prop & spilled his ENTIRE fruity drink on my skirt! Fortunately, the skirt is made of a synthetic material & didn't stain. I washed it when I returned home & you can see it hanging to dry in the background of the 1st pic below. ^_^
This is a Celtic Heart pony that I'm making for charity. I'm signing up for a MissionFish account & she will be posted on eBay with 100% of the proceeds going to the Red Cross. Watch for her auction on Sunday evening. She's made a Coconut Grove and she still smells like coconut! Yes, she was "inspired" by the prototypes which where recently spotted. The metallic wing gradients just seemed "right" on the pegasus designs. Way to go, Hasbro! ^_~
I'm thinking about changing the colors slightly on the symbol, which was adapted from the Book of Kells.
Also finished dyeing Rikku's scarf this week. The gradient dye worked better than I expected. The mixture was mostly red with a touch of burgundy. I let it set for about an hour before rinsing it out.
And here is Shady, a blue-point Himalayan cat, who was named for her shaded areas & not the rapper. We're cat-sitting for some relatives. She's 13 years old and is quite ornery. ^_~
