Here is my tablecloth square I finished yesterday. I purchased it from drowsy Swords shop on Etsy and added the crochet edging. I just love it in my farm kitchen! Pop on over to Etsy and see her lovely items: http://www.etsy.com/shop/drowsySwords
Popovers are so easy to make, and yummy too! I have special popover pans, made to keep each cup individually for better baking. Individual pudding cups will work as well. I spray the insides first.
This is the book I got my favorite popover recipe from:
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups milk
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Grease seven 3/4 cup size pyrex glass cups, or 7 small ramekins. Beat ingredients together until smooth. Fill cups almost to the top. Place on baking sheet so they are not touching. Bake 30 minutes until golden and light.
It seems like everytime I drink a bottle of water, I think about the fact that it's plastic. I really don't like the idea of that, especially since the water in that bottle is from my own tap, which is from my well. So, here I am drinking this pure, ice cold lovely water and I'm putting it into a plastic bottle.
So, today I changed my program. I filled two pint sized canning jars with my well water instead. With the canning lid and ring in place, they don't leak and I like drinking out of the glass container.
I just finished this counted cross stitch piece this morning. Nothing feels quite as wonderful as that last stitch, wouldn't you agree? I really enjoyed working on it, although I did change the colors from what the chart showed, I brightened it up a bit. The next time I go into town, I'll pick up a frame for it.
I love doing English Paper Piecing for certain quilt projects. It's positively perfect for hexagons and lends itself well for applique, too. Over the years, I have purchased vintage quilt tops with newspaper print from the time period on the backs, evidence of the maker having used the paper piece method for construction. It's always interesting to read the bits of newsprint.
