I've been busily making bread since I last posted and have decided that remembering to feed and stir the sourdough starter was just another something to remember - as a friend said when she tried it herself "I've got enough mouths to feed without adding another". But we've been busily making the French loaf and tomorrow will try a 50/50 wholemeal and white loaf in our fabulous borrowed breadmaker. I'm hoping that our friends' don't need it back in a hurry as I'm loving it. Grant walked in the house on Monday night to the smell of bread cooking and was instantly hungry!
We had an incredible Pockets of Craft night last week with a record 13 people showing up to learn how to make sock monkeys. We had a lovely evening - it really is a great way to get to know people in our community with similar interests. I may also have found someone to teach the group another skill - re-purposing adult t-shirts into little girls dresses. I attended a Learn how to use your overlocker class on the weekend and had so much fun learning how to properly use my overlocker. I had used it just for tidying up seams but now I'm ready to give rolled hems a go too! Fun, fun, fun!
