I'm watching the first episode of Elementary, the newest and much-promoted Americanised Sherlock Holmes. I don't believe that my Sunday nights will continue to be devoted to it. So far it's cheesy, tedious, and unoriginal. The transformation of Watson into Lucy Liu is such a stretch I'm waiting for the snap...ping [ricochet, ricochet] as the suspension of disbelief caves and crumbles under ridiculous stress. I'm a televisual optimist but even I can't commit to this one. I would have channel skipped by now but I'm busy typing. Rating: an hour of my life I'll never get back.

The link even has a collection of quotes and recipes for drinks and food.
I took the top off the wooden stool from a week or so ago, rubbed it all back and refinished it in readiness for a new (not broken and warped) top. I'm contemplating the size and type of the top. I think it should also do double service as a table, so slightly larger, methinks. There are a couple of options in the wings, some from an old lazy susan.
I finished a little mixed media project to match one I made last year. These frames are hard to come by but they turn up every now and then. They look as thought they were handmade.
I also made a wire ball.(Because I could, OK?) I used a roll of rusty wire I've had for ages, and I really like the way it's come out. I ended up covered head to foot (literally) in rust but seem to have avoided tetanus, so that's a win.
I broke 3 fingernails, stained my fingers, glued, sanded, oiled. I finished the usual gazillion baskets of washing. I read 2 books. I spent far too much time on Pinterest. All in all, a good weekend.
I forgot this one last weekend, I love it, 40's plaster model, won at a rural show. I know it's a bit on the worn side but still magnificent.
