But we were so busy at the studio, we hardly noticed.
Big news today..............L made her first rug.
I, for one, am very happy.
I am envisioning stacks of them...........after all, she needs the practice, right?
I spent almost all day making Greek Honey cookies, and yes, the recipe is guarded closely. I have trouble giving it up. I can't even explain it. It came to me from a Greek lady I met in Maryland, on the Chesapeake Bay, back in 1977. She gifted me with the recipe, and I have made them every Christmas since. Thanks to you Helen Vriavas, wherever you are. I remember with fondness your beautiful blond pony tail, your dazzling smile, but I will love your cookies forever.
I decided to get a rug started on every loom, so that people coming to the Open House can understand a bit of what I do.
So here's what's on the looms I dressed up:
All the while, checking the cookies. I only burned one small batch.
Here's one of the rugs my mother and I tore apart last night.
I had fun today, can you tell?
One more day to get ready. The studio is looking good. I still have more cookies to make, and a few more things to do, but it's all OK.
There are trays of cookies covered with Reynolds wrap all over the kitchen. I had to shut the doors to keep the cats out. I am sure they are not too pleased with me right about now.
But a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.
