I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! I'm finally kicking off the funk of turkey and getting back to a normal schedule.
I finally finished (mostly) my big projects. I've got a bit of cord making to do and I will be done and dressed for next weekend. Dressed? Yes, dressed. I finished my attempt at Italian Renaissance under and over dresses this week. I also made a absolutely basic mantle/cloak, a belt, and a new bag. All in all, I went through about seventeen yards of fabric. Yikes. It mostly looks like a big pile of fabric right now. I'll try to remember to take a picture when the lacing is done.
In addition, I made a fantastic sweet potato recipe from Budget Bites, my new favorite foodie blog. Of course, I forgot to take a picture. A few members of my family even ate and really liked it too! For my family, who are suspicious of a cheese ball, this was a good step forward. Well, a step forward for those who ate it.
I will continue my quest to widen the taste buds of my extended family. My mom said I could cook the turkey next year. Mwah ha ha.
