Quilts and Bread

27 Apr

So, the other day, I decided to make up a cinnamon raisin bread recipe. . . and it weighed  3.5 pounds before baking!


I’ll probably make some changes next time, but it was yummy!


I also did some quilting this weekend. . . which it seems like I do every weekend?  Most weekends?   Afterwards, I was cleaning up the room, and changed the blanket since it’s really summer now. . . and I dug out this quilt.


I noticed the date on it, and remembered that when I made this quilt, officially my second, but really my first real attempt, I swore that I was NEVER going to do another one.


And now, seven years later, I have so many baby quilts around, they just get piled on top of each other.


I also happened to notice my pin cushion (from my Maw Maw’s house) on top of my sewing kit.  The sewing kit / Caboodle was a gift from my Aunt Sara and Parrain when I was young.  I was SO excited about it when I got it, and it had this AWESOME hair bow inside that was made entirely of balloons. . . which was also awesome in an eighties sort of way.  It looked very similar to the one on the top right in this photo!


Over the years, the Caboodle has served as many things, but it’s been my sewing kit for the longest time.  Sometimes I think that I can use something bigger, but it makes me so happy still.
