Almost Orange

We had an almost perfect Thanksgiving yesterday. Amazingly, I had all my ducks in a row, and wasn't mopping the floors 3 minutes before our guests arrived.
We had my family over this year, which consists all of four other people. That's perfect for our house. Any more peeps, and we would have been a little too cramped. We prefer to have Spring and Summer holidays at our house because we have a pretty big covered patio in the back, leaving more room in the house for the food. Lots of food.
The only snag in the plans for Thanksgiving was one of the sweet potato recipes didn't come out. I've made the recipe before, and it was awesome. I was so upset that this one didn't turn out. Man was I looking forward to it. I think it's because I used Half & Half instead of heavy cream. I don't know. The cream curdled and i can't figure out why. It's bugging me now, not knowing what went wrong.
The turkey however, turned out great! While it was cooking, my son wanted to see it in the oven. I opened the door, he took a peek and declared "Yep, almost orange!". Apparently when you're a colorblind 6 year old boy, *golden brown* is Orange.

PINCUSHION! PINCUSHION! PINCUSHION! (sung to the tune of Queen's Bicycle Race)

That is what was in my head when I woke up this morning. The men of Queen singing my version of their song. Now it's stuck in my head. The rest of it goes like the voice of Freddy Mercury of course....

I want to sew my pincushions
I want to get them done
I want to sew my pincushions
So i can have some fun

Apparently I have some things on my mind.

Lotsa Lotsa Fabric

I've been on a mission lately to clean up the craft room. It's a long process. Mainly because I'm also trying to get a lot of projects done with the Holidays coming up and trying to add items to my etsy shop. I feel like I'm in a catch 22 since this is what my work table looks like.

Do I spend time cleaning up, or working to get items listed in my shop? Can't decide. I think I'll spend the weekend doing a lot of both.

A Day of Firsts

Today is a day of lots of firsts.

First post of my new blog.

First snow of the season. Isn't is pretty, what little there is? It'll be gone by noon.

First day in a LONG time i didn't have to wait in traffic on my way to work. That was especially helpful since i was running late. As usual.
