Lucia plays poker 5 nights a week. She has an addiction to gambling, so to curb the addiction she still allows herself to play cards, though not for money, for chips, and not the plastic kind of chip, the edible kind. The crunchier the chip, the higher its worth. Lucia's strategy is to play the player, not the cards. She could have a hand worth nothing more than a few baked potato chips, but due to her superior poker face and indifferent curvature of her unibrow, she keeps her opponents guessing. On her best night, she walked home with a 10 pound bag of the highest quality of Kettle chips. She shared them with her dog, Joker, who also plays poker and smokes cigars.
Lucia will be available in my Etsy shop.
I made three more ladies with giant flowers on their hats that I will be posting this week. I am really enjoying making new patterns. This week I am also going to make these S'more Brownies to send to a friend who has a S'mores (in all forms from traditional to ice cream) addiction and a bun in the oven which I think would enhance the S'mores addiction.
