Puffy Woes

So, you know the Beekeeper quilt, right?

That one that started the Hexipuff craze a few years ago?

I kinda jumped on the wagon because they're quick and easy to make and I feel REALLY FRICKEN' ACCOMPLISHED if I finish more than one thing in a day.

And it's really really easy to make more than one hexipuff in a day.

Being able to churn out a few puffs while you're watching something is a great excuse to justify spending an entire day watching Marvel movies or going through an entire season of Doctor Who in one sitting ^.^;

Coz I definitely haven't done that.

Nope, not me!



I was keeping my puffs in a big glass vase before I moved house, and during the move they got a bit lost in the small mountain massive pile stack of my 'craft stuff' boxes.

Well the other day I found them again. Yippee!

I shall now chronicle the adventure of the puff rediscovery for you, using a combination of photoshop and the Doge Meme.

Please note:

  1. I will be doing this badly
  2. The word 'Billions' should be read in the voice of Carl Sagan.

So, I found my box of hexipuffs:

Excited, I tipped them out to admire my handiwork.

Wondering how big the blanket would be if I started joining them together now, I started to lay them out.

Pretty soon I encountered a problem.

The pile seemed to be shrinking faster than the blanket embryo was growing.

I didn't have quite as many puffs as I thought I did.

Feeling very let down, I put them back in their box and sulked for a bit. As you do when you're sleep-deprived enough to regress to the maturity level of a small child.

While hexipuffs are fast to make, they don't exactly reproduce like rabbits if you put a couple in a box and leave them alone for a few months. For some reason, I had kinda expected them to do so.

Note to self: Hexipuffs are not Tribbles.
