Oranges, and other colors
I've recounted my success with the lemon marmalade in a previous post, but I wasn't sure it would work with oranges. Yesterday, with some fear and trepidation, I started a batch. I should have used fewer oranges, but the produce company I buy from doesn't like me to buy less than a case. This batch has been in its first boil and is waiting in the fridge for me to come back to work Thursday for its second boiling. Friday, fingers crossed, it will be lovely, set up marmalade.
In other news, the Southeast Fiber Forum 2011 forges ahead. We have eight teachers confirmed, and two more on the line. Contracts go out to them this afternoon, after our meeting at the center. Next, we work on getting the word out, and getting more vendors lined up. Advertising efforts are next, along with getting participants for the fashion show. I jumped into this feet first, without having the slightest idea what I was getting into. It's challenging and fun and a little exhausting, already, and the thing is still a year away, but I feel a huge clock ticking somewhere in the universe, warning me how fast the last tick will get here!
Off to Tuesday Weaving! Have a beautiful, if somewhat soggy day!
