I am not a fan of white bread, so I dug out my trusty Betty Crocker cookbook and found a honey wheat bread recipe. And this is what happened:
Oh my goodness! It was out of this world!! So of course now my husband only wants the homemade stuff - what have I gotten myself into?! Seriously though, it did turn out incredible (if I do say so myself)...I also made a batch of French bread which turned out well - but did not seem worth the effort...I guess because the loaves are so skinny.
I have also decided to get back into crafts. It has been 10 years since I held a crochet hook or knitting needles in my hands. So, I crocheted this scarf for my daughter:
This shows the color she chose - it was a variegated purple and deep blue color. And here is the finished scarf:
The picture came out a little dark, but I was very pleased with my work. It had been a LONG time! And now that I have my confidence back, I am knitting another scarf that is worked in a berry stitch pattern. I saw it on Mama Pea's blog and she kindly shared the pattern with me. I forgot how much more time knitting takes than crocheting...I am hoping to have it finished by the time I start planting the garden!
