My list for December included making labels for the quilts-in-waiting---those in line for quilting. I printed out a page of 4, another is hiding under something :) Two of them are ready to go. The pineapple label needs some borders added yet.
Mug rugs on display......these are finished and some straight line quilting. I just kept going round and round and back and forth. I also had time to cut out some words for the giving on Tuesday. I think I will have enough to send at least 3 to each name I pick.
I have been reading and enjoying Barbara's adventures at CatPatches blog with her barm and bread making this week. I got motivated to make a couple of loaves of sweet bread stuffed with cooked apples. I think I had the icing a little bit thick....thinner would be more of a glaze.
Thick or not.....it is good. It won't hang around here very long, so I can try it again.
I used a sweet dough mix that I got this spring.....and I use a bread machine to do the kneading and first rise to dough stage. The apples were chopped and cooked to a softer stage with some sugar, cinnamon and corn starch for thickening before filling the dough.
A full weekend.....and it's Monday morning by the time this post goes up. That means I am getting ready to have the stitches out this morning.....look out world, she has hands! Back tomorrow.....happy stitching.
