Friends gathered last evening for a bread making lesson from our friend Paula.....what a perfectly delightful evening it was!
This bread is absolutely delicious and so very easy to make.
She brought each of us a sour dough starter that needs to be fed once a week. I have a bit of anxiety considering what will happen to it when I am out of town teaching! Once you make up the bread, you let it raise for 18 - 24 hours and then bake for 30 minutes. You simply put together the ingredients the evening before and the next evening you have fresh bread for dinner. YUM! From this starter we also received recipes for Sour Dough Belgium Waffles, Sour Dough Pancakes, and Sour Dough Pizza Crust. I'm excited.
I thought I'd share this adorable container that my friend, Karen Whitmeyer, made for me the last time I taught at Grand Country Quilters.
I love it.....it is one of my favorite things!
I have a few more quilts to share.....this is a counted cross stitch piece which has been added to this quilted wall hanging.
Sun Flower Farm
Dresden Flower.....made from an orphan block.
By claiming this orphan block, this quilter made an eye catching wall hanging.
