Flash in the brain pan!!!

I just got a brilliant idea for something I can quilt for the bathroom! It involves upcycling old towels... I'll tell you when I get one made... :)

BUT that won't be until after we move, which got delayed again. Is anyone keeping track how many times I've said that? I've lost count! As of 4 p.m. yesterday, I was making fudge to take to our realtor as a thank you, but then during dinner with my mom and brother, Tim texted and let me know I didn't need to drive down today after all.... delayed again. Oh well. The way the ankle is behaving, it would have been a very painful drive for me to make, so for that I am glad I do not have to drive down there. Plus, I was able to sleep in a little.... but I did get up early enough to see this:

That right there is one thing I love about winter: sunrise comes late enough I get to see it without being a sleep-deprived barista!!! I think this is going to end up being some quilty inspiration... perhaps the color scheme, perhaps I'll try thread painting, we shall see... it's just too pretty to Not work into a project!

 The scarf is done. And very warm! And yes, that is a Playstation 3 controller behind me on the couch. :)
This morning, I worked on the letters a little more:
As you can see, "Crazy" is finished, and I also have "LAD" for the Lady part... just need another Y, and I think I'm going to make another cat to go in between. I like it a lot so far. I need to pick a solid for the border between the cat head and the words, and then I'll pick another border to go around all the words as the final border.

Yesterday I had quite the adventure with our oven....

The funny part is that I was HAPPY to have the door fall halfway off! It had been previously stuck closed!!! I called Tim... through giggles on my part, this was the conversation...

Tim: Hey, Babe. what's up?
Me: Um, the oven won't open, and my pizza is stuck inside.
Tim: What?
Me: The oven won't open, and my pizza is stuck inside, and I'm hungry!
Tim: Kick it, I guess.

(pause while I for once do exactly as I'm told)

Me: Oh! Oh! Ok, I think I can get my pizza out now, but you're going to have to put the door back on tomorrow. Thanks!

The door is now completely off and leaning against the front of the stove. That, ladies and gents, is why I am SO VERY GLAD that Thanksgiving will be "normal" again this year at my mom's house. It was fun in a way to make Thanksgiving all by myself last year for just Tim and me, but given that our stove has been, uh, decommissioned, I am thankful for family and friends and my mother's kitchen this year!!!!!

May all your ovens be working, and may you have a fabulous Thanksgiving this year!


  1. Funny oven story! Maybe I can get out of cooking Thanksgiving dinner for everyone by doing this........that's my story and I'm sticking to it....LOL!

  2. I agree that the oven story was hilarious. As my oven is a new one, I don't think that I could pull it off.
