A sewing day!
I am going to get to sew today! Would you believe, I called the Bernina dealer down in Houma, explained my dilemma, and they DELIVERED a brand new power cord to me here in Boutte? $13 bucks. They had to go to the airport in Kenner last night, and offered to bring the cord along with them.
I think I need to have some chocolates delivered to their store!
It’s finally sunny again, and supposedly the guy we hired to replace our RV awning is going to show up today… but then I’ve heard that three times already so I’m not holding my breath, but I’m stuck here all day on the chance that he makes an appearance, so a sew day it is!
I’d cut out the pieces to make another table runner just like the one underneath all my stuff here, only it will be three blocks instead of two, and the fabrics are slightly different. A nice project for the RV… I got tired of making granny squares for the crocheted afghan, but I do need to finish that, I have so many darn UFO’s it’s not even funny.
I experimented with some buttermilk wheat rolls yesterday. I ground a bag of wheat before leaving the house as supermarket whole wheat tastes yucky to me, I’m too spoiled with having fresh ground for years. I didn’t knead these, so I wasn’t sure how the texture would be, but they seemed just fine.
Not quite as fluffy as normal, but I think next time I will start them early in the morning, so the dough has more time to develop. What I did was mix the dough up with a spoon, then set a timer for 30 minutes, and folded the dough over a few times every 30 minutes (three times) and then let them rise. Doing that for a longer period would work better. Jim said they tasted great, I haven’t tried one yet, but will for lunch today!
