Make color-catchers

Got this idea from Jilee's website. Soak pieces of white felt in hot water and washing soda. One tablespoon soda in one cup hot water. Hang to drip dry and use!!

Making breads

Sourdough and sourdough rye.


Fabric pens and paint sticks. Iron on designs.

Making potholders

This is easier than embroidery. Fabric pens and color sticks.

Me and my Dia de los Muertos Quilt

I went to the Museum of South Texas History in Edinburg, Texas.
The workers there hung my quilt. Awesome!!!
I can hardly wait for next Saturday.
If I can't attend the Houston International Quilt Festival, at least I can enjoy my quilt.

Sourdough Starter

I can remember getting a bag of "Friendship Bread" starter, with the recipe attached, from co-workers. Most people hated getting these, as they felt obligated to make the bread, keep the starter alive, and pass on the starter to other unsuspecting friends/relatives/co-workers/enemies!!! lol.
I loved getting starters. I would use the whole batch and throw the evidence away.
Yum! Friendship Bread.
Today' recipes, that get passed around via internet, list a pkg of  instant vanilla pudding. What? I don't remember that being an ingredient.
So I googled and sure enough, the old recipes DO NOT include the pudding.
Well today I started some SOURDOUGH starter. In 3 days I get to make some sourdough bread. Yahoo!! I can hardly wait.
Since I've spent the last couple of years trying to get back to basics, especially since my hubby fancies himself a Doomsday Prepper, I thought I could get back to bread making.
Updates later, if it doesn't make me feel pressured. lol.
