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.

Congrats on the award. All your goodies sound great and glad you had a little time to make something to keep your ears warm! The Christmas Open House sounds like a lot of fun - hope you'll share more of all the festivities.

"Off with their heads!" HA HA HA! Thank you for the laugh, Melissa! Sounds like you've had plenty to do to keep yourself busy lately. That is great that you had so many orders. I'll look forward to pictures of what you made. :D

Congratulations on the award.
It sounds like you have really been a busy bee.
I like your idea of the family open house. All my family(my 6 brother, sisters and families are getting together this next weekend at my Mother's)
Well, now the decorating cookies sound like fun, but let me eat
Have a great day.

Girl, you have been a busy beaver. Sounds like business is great though! Sounds like the open house at Christmas will be lots of fun! Making sugar cookies together should be great! I can smell them baking right now. YUM!

Congrats on the award!

Thanks for visiting and commenting today! I thought I'd come by and visit...and have been here over 20 minutes, reading your post!! The climbing up the scaffolding and watching your husband outside the window one...gave me sweaty palms!! YUCKO!!

You'll love the Turkey Recipe! It's the GREATEST!!

Thanks for your comment today. I do have yarn made from our alpacas' fiber. We have white, black, fawn, and grey for sale. I'm trying to get an online store up before December. So busy with the alpacas though. Lots of babies! Gotta go check on an expectant mom now.

Love the Let them Eat Cake award! Marie Antoinette is fabulous. Loved the movie with Kirsten Dunst. The pastoral scenes were breathtaking.
