I have one lone block leftover from my Allietare quilt. I think it will make a nice pillow for our screened porch, don't you? I need to add some borders to it to make it bigger and then I'll quilt it. Sound like a good mindless project for today!
I didn't sew any yesterday. I did go to the grocery store. And I made bread:
I found the recipe HERE - Honey Oatmeal Walnut Bread. This is a great recipe!!!! I didn't have walnuts so I threw in a handful of pumpkin seeds. And I left off the poppy seeds from the tops of the loaves. I will definitely make this again! FYI, I double the recipe to make 2 loaves...
I am using my Kitchenaid mixer to knead the dough so it's really not hard to make. Also, I'm putting the extra loaf in the freezer until I need it. I store the loaf that I'm using in the refrigerator - you know, store bought bread has preservatives so that it will stay fresh longer - mine does not. I typically eat one slice of bread for breakfast with eggs and then eat another slice with my dinner. Trying to keep it to 2 slices per day (though sometimes I might eat 3...).
Cooper and I are going for a nice long morning walk - better to get him harnessed up. Hope you have a lovely day.
