A Better Day

Today I managed to bake bread without setting anything on fire!
Thanks for all the concerned comments. All is well. My kitchen is possibly a shade grayer than it used to be, & I still smell an odd odor (though Warren says it smells fine…of course that was about the time the bread came out of the oven).

While the bread was rising, I sat by the fire (in the wood stove this time), & did a little hand work on the next crazy quilt. It’s some of the same fabrics as the last one I did that was donated. This one is for us. No time limits, no deadlines, just relaxing hand work when I can.

I even listened to a little Christmas music on TV today. Trying to get into the mood.

Mmmmmmmm, I can smell the fresh bread-glad it went better today! The quilt snippets look elegant. (I refuse to listen to Christmas music until after Thanksgiving!)

Yes, those loaves do look a little more appetizing.

I can't wait to see this crazy quilt develop. I love the fabrics and textures of the other pieces. This is sure to be a gorgeous quilt.

Wow, Deb! Just saw your last post and I'm glad that's all the further the fire got! Your newest loaves look much more appetizing! :>)) Hope to see you sometime before I head south!

Your embellishments are beautiful, and what a clever idea with the feather. How big are you planning on making it.
How awful you "bread baking" day, I miss your cranberry bread.
