Around here

New craft project to make a baby mat for my niece who is having a baby in December.  I haven't gone for baby colours but picked this kit from Scribbly Gum Quilt Co.  I've also got the sewing machine out to firstly finish my Big Patch Quilt that I started August two years ago before we had other family things come up that needed our attention.  I haven't got that much left to do and then I need to put the binding on so I'm determined to finish this before starting the baby quilt.  Susan from Hopewood Home makes the most stunning quilts and the way she puts fabrics together is incredible.

I haven't made sourdough bread in a couple of months because my daughter was bringing home the leftover bread from her part time job.  I hadn't feed my starter so it took a good week of trying to get it to come back to life and it's looking great now so starting making bread again.  I use Elaine Boddy's Master Recipe, timeline and cooking from a cold oven and it's the best and easiest process I've seen over the years.

I made up this paste to clean my white coffee cups that had tea stains in them.

My white tea stained coffee cups "before" I left it on a while and then cleaned them.

Dinner with homemade coleslaw and home made dressing and a home made salsa to go with salmon.

  1. Kathy I fed my two starters yesterday. Yes I have two...Griffin and Gertrude. I must check out that recipe you linked to.

  2. The fabric colors are beautiful! I agree about Hopewood Home, her designs are incredible indeed. Your sourdough is lovely and looks so delicious! Wishing you a wonderful week ahead!
