I Hope You’ll Forgive Me…

First,  I hope you’ll forgive me for not having more photos of pants and Marji’s visit.  Marji and I made three muslins and I have to sew up the fourth one still. It was an amazing few days with her and she’s really encapsulated my thoughts on the internet and sewing on her blog. My hair is straight over there. I got a haircut while Marji was here and the stylist gave me a blow out and used a hot comb. It lasted a day with the fog. It just grew and grew and grew. By midafternoon I was wearing a hat.  It’s now back to normal ;)Second, I hope you’ll forgive me because I’m a little hard headed at times. I’m usually a good advice taker, but I really got it stuck in my head to make the ginger cookies (ducks). Are we still cool? I am overwhelmed by the suggestions for different baked goods and deeply appreciative.  But, I just got an idea in my head and couldn’t let it go.My camera is MIA, so a camera phone shot it as. 

Anna, my co-worker has never baked a cookie in her life. We started at 8:30 p.m. and wrapped up aroune 1:00 a.m.   These suckers sold like hotcakes. I don’t know that they were *jealous*, but squeals of joy were heard.  And, I won’t lie to you. The first couple of batches did *not* look like this. You were NOT kidding. This ish is HARD.

I hope you guys have a great weekend planned. Tonight, I’m seeing Precious with my roommate. We wanted to see Twilight, but all the 15 year olds bought the tickets already 😉 Tomorrow some ballet and on Sunday, if you can believe it, I’m going to the gun range with a friend. I always said I’d shoot a gun when they came in pink. He found one.


  1. You lead the most interestingst (I know it aint a word!) life! Cookies, pant fittings and pink guns…you couldn’t find this stuff in the movies! *LOL* I can’t wait to see the first pair of finished pants from the Marji Muslins!

  2. A ‘pink’ gun ?? Where on earth ?!

    And that is one good looking cookie – I’m glad it worked out for you and was a success 🙂

  3. I wish I had a pink gun. Mine is beautiful jet black. And, honey, there can be some fine looking young guys at the shooting range…just saying.

    Your cookies came out pretty. It is best to just do what you really want to do. You can always change your mind later if it just isn’t working for you! And I heard that New Moon isn’t so hot. Precious should be better. Have fun anyway!

  4. Those cookies ARE a lot of work, but you pulled it off! Hubs and I want to see Precious and Blind Side, but not sure if we can get to the theater or if we’ll have to rent them later. We’re coming up on the busy time for the “Jolly old Elf” and movies usually don’t fit in the month of December. Check out my profile on my blog and you’ll see what I’m talking about. ;o)

  5. They turned out GREAT! Did you use the new tips? So glad to hear they sold well.
    And, a pink gun – lordy what is this world coming to? Somehow, I hope it’s a big honkin 357 magnum in pink…have fun.

  6. Uh a pink gun?! Then you really must go and try it. What color are the targets?
    I know the feeling when you take advice, because you are unsure about your plan, and end doing it your way.
    In fact, the pieces of advice helped you plan your plan A better 🙂 And they look very good those cookies!

  7. The cookies are lovely! Does your hand hurt? I used to do decorated Turkey cookies for Thanksgiving including putting everyone’s name on them to use as place cards. It is a really time consuming! How many did you end up making?

  8. Shooting is FUN! Enjoy the pink gun! I saw one at the sporting goods store but it was made for a little person. It was pink camo.

  9. You are going to post a pic of you and the pink gun, right? Find some sewing notions in camo and get him with them next!

  10. You crack me up! I just KNEW you’d be going with Plan A (re: the cookies). I think I knew it, ’cause that’s just what I’d do, too.

  11. My dear Cidell:

    The cookies look delicious and you have done a spectacular job with them. But that is not why I am here. I just wanted to let you know that when you visit my blog and tell me you are in love with me, for me it is like that scene at the end of Sixteen Candles (SPOILER ALERT!!) when Jake, the hottest guy in school, is waiting for Molly Ringwald outside her sister’s wedding, standing in front of his Porsche, and she’s all like, “WAIT. You have a crush on ME???” Only with sewing.

    😉 Elaine
