The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
Yesterday I decided to bake bread. I do this about once a month as I am allergic to wheat. I bake a "white" spelt loaf . This lasts about a week and a half. The rest of the time, if I want bread, I eat pumpernickle or a similar "schwartz" bread or I just don't eat bread. I put the dough into the bread pan and set it in front of the heater for the second rise. The next time I went into the kitchen, the empty bread pan and the dishcloth I had used to cover it where on the floor. Where was the bread dough, you ask. Inside the dog, I answer. This was the bad. The dog had diarrhoea all evening and a couple of time in the night. Anyone surprised? I think not. This was the ugly.
The good though was very good . Patricks report card was very acceptable. Alexander Skiped a grade. When he left school on Friday he was a 10th grader and when he goes back on Monday , he is an 11th grader. Very nice. My childeren are so smart, attractive and wonderful- and I don't just say that because I am their mother ;-)
Then today, I went to a new LNS. New for me anyway. My friend Dani asked me if I wanted to go with her to a LNS sale at a store she used to shop a quite often. She had moved and the store was too far for her to visit often, but off we went. I didn't buy too much, mainly because the store was so full. I did get a few charts though. One "prarie schooler" and a couple of others with little animals and lighthouses. Also I got three really good sized pieces of Zweigert" linen for 10 Euros the meter. A great price. I have plans for two pieces already, One is going to be a wall hanging with applique, SRE, stitching, and beads. It is in the Lena this month. You can order a kit but they wanted over 100 Euros for it. I think, with the Linen ony having cost me 10 Euros and the floss, beads and silk ribbon that I have in my stash I can get away with spending a lot less.
I just have to the bits of print fabric and iron on stiffener and some linen floss. I would love to have this done for Valentines day., but I will need to go to the quilting store for the prints and they have wierd opening times. Am going to try though!
