I made SB a new fleece robe this week. After playing around with my serger I finally figured out that it was out of alignment - needs to go to the shop. Fortunately fleece is easy to sew on a sewing machine - last time I made SB a robe was 2 years ago and it just wasn't going to fit this year - and with cold weather fast approaching - a new robe was a must! I spent extra time on it - topstitching all the seams - I really like that look. I didn't cut the fabric upside down - the print runs both ways depending where the pattern falls on the robe. Anyway - no sooner do I get it finished - but look what he sees out the window this morning? SNOW!
And here is a photo of my crazy apple tree - it lost its leaves a long time ago but those apples are still hanging on!
A friend came over today with her 2 kids - and while the kids ran in and out like yo-yos to play in all that delightful snow, we made bread and rolls. 20 cups of flour, phew - that is a lot of bread! The kids were happy to help with the kneading part, the making little balls for rolls part and of course, the eating part. A commercial kitchen comes in handy for big baking projects! It all went so well that next weekend we are planning on doing cookies together.
