Getting Caught Up
It has stopped raining for a bit so I went outside and took
a few pictures. My flowers have all been beat down because
of the wind. Not to mention the rain. The good thing about rain
this late in May is that it has the hint of summer in the air.
I think it shouts to me of promises yet to come, of sunshine,
of the smell of the warm water in the pool with the hint of chlorine.
I love that smell. The smell of hot grass as you walk over it in bare feet.
Even the sounds of chickens muttering to themselves as they take
dust baths .
I finally got my rug drawn out. I used Stitch Witchery
to draw out the pattern and then traced it onto linen.
It bled through with my sharpie and then I went back over it.
I was kind of excited how it turned out. I can't wait to start it
which will be today. My husband who isn't a big fan, well not a big
fan of primitive at all, was very nice as he looked down and said,"
you did a nice job of tracing." I laughed and laughed because he was
trying so hard to be nice. I had to show him the real picture of
what it is going to look like when it is finished.
I am sorry but this is all that is left of the fold over
my next pie in my book. It went so fast that by the time
I got my camera this is what it looked like. They ate
it as it came out of the oven. I will be making this again.
This is the picture in the cookbook.
It was fun to make. A cross between a fried pie and a pop tart.
I will give you the recipe tonight. I have fooled around this
morning and I am out of time and writing out recipes takes
me a long time. I also have a recipe for Rhubarb-Raspberry tart
I made yesterday too.
It feels nice to be baking again.
Bye for now,
Have a lovely day,
