Freaky Friday Challenge - on a New Zealand Saturday!

The time has come, and the gauntlet was thrown down last week. Deb Batten of Sew Much to Do, Sew Little Time and I made the decision to try to improve our lampworking skills by challenging each other in one way or another. It will take discipline. (Us?) We are both ready for the challenge. After last week's attempts at window beads, I chose the word: BUGGER! I love that word! It's a New Zealand phrase that has captured my imagination and has been integrated into my vocabulary. Bugger! Our task was to make Bugger Beads. This is all a matter of interpretation. I have no idea what Deb will produce with her challenge. She has not idea what I have produced for this challenge. It is now time to show the results of BUGGER! Deb explains the meaning of the term BUGGER best in her blog. Take a peek.

Now, I decided that it was important to visualize a Bugger. I thought, buggers must have eyes and mouths. Hmmmmm. Bugger!

Then I thought, hmmmmm, buggers are more than just a lot of eyes and mouths. I think a bugger is watching me.

Then I thought, when would I say bugger? I think if my heart hurt. I would clearly say, "Bugger."

Ouch! That would hurt! Then I thought, when would there be another chance to say Bugger! ? I think when a bully is beating up someone. Bugger! I think the kitty got the worst of the fight, and the bird found a new home. Buggger says kitty. I think I've been beat up by that bully on my head! Bugger!
Well, I'm getting awfully sleepy now. I might have to go to bed early today. I hear the honkers starting to fly south. Bugger! That means winter is coming. Bugger! Bugger! Bugger!

Ohmygosh, that Bugger that watches is too cool, and I think that Kitty cat who is saying Bugger about the bird nesting on her head is too funny! If I tried to make a bugger bead, I think I'd be spewing "oh, bugger me" all around the torch, LOL! Great job, Mallory!
