Saturday Fun

Saturdays are the only day of the week that pulla baking occurs around this house. Today I used powdered milk instead of regular 2% milk. I have plenty of the powdered stuff sitting in the pantry ... and regular milk ... the cereal bowls would prefer it! I think I gained several pounds after eating today! A big accomplishment today included this quilt! When the girls were little ones, I did a fair amount of sewing. With sewing comes the piles of left over fabric. I also took things apart to use fabric. The waste not want not thing. I wish I could remember how many years ago it was that I finally decided I had to do something with all those scraps or pitch them. I put together my first quilt ... and then stashed it in a closet. It stayed there for MANY years. In the past several years I took it out again. I used it for a cover over a couch which made those nasty seams start fraying. Ugh! Before we moved up here I decided that it had to be finished. And did I try. Without accomplishing my mission. This past week it came out again ... took over the dining room table .. Oreo the cat took over the blanket .... and my fingers are nearly raw!
Every knot is tied ... the binding is on ... and I added it to the pile of blankets we grab from when there is a chill in the house! I should have had Anna show me how to put the binding on ... her quilt looks much better than mine. :) Will see what I can find to do next!

The pulla looks good! Oh, how I would love to go there for a slice and a cup of coffee! Want company?

Absolutely ... hurry up before it's gone! I think I'm going to start making more braids instead of the small rolls. Takes much less time and it gets inhaled just as fast! :)

I baked your pulla knots this weekend and have stashed them in the freezer to pull out when company comes following the arrival of baby. I hate when people come over and I have nothing to serve with coffee!!!Will see if the food stays in the freezer that long; I will likely have to make more. Some night this week, I want to get cookies baked and shove some in the freezer and then try some other things to. The goal is a freezer full of things that can easily be pulled out when someone comes to visit :)
