This will be the last one today

Aren't I just a gabby Gertie today - just several things to share with you.  I borrowed my daughter's marvelous mixer - oh my goodness, I think it could mix cement.  (although it would make a real mess with the beater).  Ahar, ahar, ahar.

So start with the machine,
Not sure it is obvious, but this is enough dough for 3 loaves of Buttermilk Bread, a la "Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day"
The dough will spend the night in the refrigerator and then tomorrow I can make the first loaf.  YUM.

While this was sitting in its pot and raising, I worked on a couple of little projects,

Crazy Christmas - it really looks rather awful here, but it is kind of cute, in person.  Just a bit crazy.  And then I finished the center of the quilt for my daughter to give as a (belated) wedding gift.

As these folks are hikers and campers I'm thinking something tree/mountain/outdoorsy for a border.  I like it.

Ahhh ... artisan bread. I can smell it from here. :) And it encourages me to make a batch myself. Maybe some sun-dried-parmesan or dill-onion ... you can't go wrong with anything you make.

As for your crafty endeavors, I'm humbled. :) Everything is absolutely lovely. I especially like the pillowcases. There's something so very comforting about putting your head to sleep on something that Nana has made.

Thanks for sharing, friend. Prayers for you & E. in the next days over your "stuff".
