Three things to be happy about:
(1) reading in a bookstore
(2) doing one thing at a time
(3) not answering the phone
Has anybody except me had enough of the campaign robo-calls?? It almost makes me want to make a list and go "okay, this one and this one and this one won't get my vote..." One call is enough, why keep bombarding the good folks??
For some reason I put myself into the "pretty good cook" category and decided to wing it with this bread pudding. Someone (not calling any names, but it MIGHT be something like "Elsie") told me that she used one of those liquid flavored coffee creamers instead of milk and hers turned out really good! Well, I went and got a big bottle of creamer, French vanilla flavored, and ... eeeech!
My bread pudding turned out so bad I reserve the right to not show it with the lid off the dish! The texture was sort of like ... you ever see milk when it "separates"? Well, that's what it looked like. So much for winged bread pudding! If anyone has a pretty good recipe for bread pudding, please pass it on!
I was invited to join the String Thing Along challenge, and I've started another set of string blocks - strings are so easy to do!
Because that middle block will be sort of on the small size, I wanted the strings to be no wider than 1-1/2", else I wouldn't get the effect I want.
I trimmed some of them down to the size I wanted, I have a lot of wide pieces ... I think they're from cutting 2" or 2-1/2" strips that got skewed, so I just tossed them in the string bin.
These are the untrimmed string blocks I pieced this morning! There are six, I only need three more for the design I have in mind. I wanted to keep this one bright, so it's looking good already!
More later, have a great Tuesday. Sew forth and sew on...
