yet more octopus

I am enjoying making octopodes on things.

That’s supposed to be a doughnut. (Thanks, Jen) I like the filled doughnut idea because it makes use of the bead hole. The bead hole looks conspicuous on a sandwich.

First try vampire squid (or maybe octopus) on face:

Can you tell I just kind of stopped? That was unexpectedly stressful. Sometimes it’s best to just get the creäture* on there and throw it back in the kiln. You can always re-heat.  And the time for cape practice is not when you’re building one on top of something involved.  I’m re-living that bead now. Shudder. More on that one later. I’m going to go stick an octopus on a ball of yarn. I made one yesterday out of stringer. That sounds like fun.

*Word Press spell check keeps wanting me to put an umlat over the “a” in creature. An umlat? WTF is up with that?
