Sunday Afternoon Activity…..

20171022_1  This…. which I mixed up last night…. became this….


And it has been tasted and is lovely crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.  I love this Harvest bread when it comes out of the dutch oven – you can hear all the little seeds crackling and popping from the heat.

While that was baking I added the last border on the cat wall hanging then go it layered and quilted.


And love the fun retro looking fabric on the back.


I’m off to a slow start but at least one of my Loopy Ewe Great Sewing Challenge projects will be finished before the deadline



Sunday Morning Activity

Laundry is going, dishwasher is going -are there any more machines around here that I can turn on to clean things for me while I do something else? — alas no. 🙂  But I did mix up some bread yesterday which does practically make itself.


I spied the King Arthur Harvest Grains seed mix in the freezer  so decided to mix up some no knead bread last night. Five minutes or less with the mixer to mix it all together, let it sit in the mixing bowl overnight, shape into a loaf this morning and let sit for a while, and then pop it into the oven for a lovely crusty loaf of No-Knead Harvest Grains Bread (recipe on website).


The cowl I started on Friday night in this yarn….

is now finished and on the blocking mats to dry


And the first Greyfel I made is also now on the blocking mats. I do love this orangey/rust yarn.  It’s call The Fox and it’s a perfect description of it.


It’s a gray and rainy fall day here  so perfect weather to be thinking flannel fabric.  I haven’t decided for sure what I plan to do with this flannel  (use it on a quilt back or maybe make some pjs or robe for lounging about in) but I think this print is so cute.
