Another loaf of bread
My bread baking bowl arrived from King Arthur Flour a few days ago and I've been seasoning it by brushing it with vegetable oil ever since. Yesterday, I decided to take it for its maiden voyage. My sourdough starter, using Emeril's recipe, was bubbling away in the refrigerator, and I used bread flour this time. It turned out pretty good! I softened the crust just a little bit by dotting it with butter when it came out of the oven and covering it with foil while cooling. Perfect and very tasty!
I spent yesterday finishing up flying geese to add to a border of Margaret's round robin. It was all polka dotted fabrics - blues, limes, oranges, yellow, and white. Paul thought it unattractive, but I think a child will really enjoy it. I am going to pass it along to Marie, the next person in the rotation, this week so she will have it for the February exchange. I'll pick up the next quilt to work on (Lynn's?) when I get back from our trip.
Today I'm going to work on one of my many UFOs. Maybe catch up on the 365 challenge (I know - I said I wouldn't do another block of the day/month, but who can resist this??) or the black and white tumbler quilt I started ages ago. It's sunny but quite chilly (6 degrees when I got up at 6 am), but we are all thanking our lucky stars that we didn't get "Snowzilla" as they did to our south.
