There's been lots things being made around here the past few days.

Homemade bread in the dutch oven.  I have died and gone to heaven!  This is absolutely the easiest bread I have ever made.  There is only half of this loaf left.  Another will have to be made this weekend.

You really must try this book out.  It's amazing.  It's clearly the best I have had my hands on in a long time.  You won't be disappointed.  

Then there is the blanket for our great nephew who is a few months old now.  Just have to make a special label for it and it will be sent off so he can do some snuggling.

Hopefully this weekend will be comprised of more making with some fabric scraps and a few movies in between.  And finishing up with a few school books.

Looking pretty good so far.

  4. Your bread looks delicious. I make bread in a breadmaker using wholemeal flour, seeds and lots of other healthy things. My hubby won't eat anything else. You can't beat home baked bread.

  7. Jim Lahey's book is one of my favourites for bread. I make the bread in regular loaf pans and we can use it for toast and sandwiches.
