Let Them Eat Cake
It is hilarious that Daisy nominated me for the "Let Them Eat Cake" Award ("Marie Antoinette A Real Person, A Real Award"). This is one of my favorite sayings (and things to do). I generally follow up the comment with "Off with their heads!" Which is what Marie Antoinette heard right after she opened up the bakeries.....don't mess with people's cake - you could loose your head!
So for today I say to everyone!!!!! "Off with their heads"....oops, "Let them eat cake!"
I wish I had a petit four and a lounging couch!!!!
This weekend I finished up nearly all my custom orders. (Three car scarves, four pairs of half mittens, one long scarf, one hat for me (hee hee, I put in a custom order for myself! Hey my ears are getting cold.) I sorted through my available yarn stash and picked out the fibers for the two scrumble purses I still have to finish and sorted some craft boxes...I was one busy beaver.
During the week I need to start on the crocheted/felted pouches my sister wants for our shin dig at Mom's for Christmas. We are hosting an open house. It has been a while since Mom has had us all over for a holiday....we thought it would be fun to host an open house so friends, neighbors, family, and those people who drive around looking for open houses to get a free meal could stop by and wish us all a Merry Christmas. We eliminate the stress of cooking a big meal or rushing from one house to another and not giving full attention to anyone....For childhood entertainment we're going to decorate sugar cookies! What fun, nearly as much fun as eating cake.
Maybe pictures tomorrow of my goodies before I mail them all off to their new homes.
