Another Pillow?

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.


  1. good looking bread! I have a bread machine and often make bread for the kids.
    a pillow is great us of a leftover block

  2. Bread loos delicious! As does her recipe for egg salad! Yum!! What a great idea for the pillow from your block! It will be perfect!

  3. Bread tends to dry in the refrig. It was recommended to me to slice the whole loaf and freeze and take out as one needs. So far it has worked.
