When I Think Of Spring......!!!

........I think of green grass, sunshine and open windows letting in a lovely breeze to freshen everywhere....oh and of course baby lambs.
I don't think of brown filthy mud, rain and the heating on full blast because it's so cold.

Yes it's another wet and windy day here in Staffordshire and the sofa quilts and cushion covers which were going to be washed and hung out on the line will not be getting done today. Instead I will be making a huge pan of soup (Ganma's magic soup as Ruby will be here) and homemade bread.
I have discovered that I prefer to use the breadmaker to do all the hard work and then bake the bread in the oven. The loaf I made in the machine yesterday looked and tasted lovely but the crust was just way too crusty for comfort.

Two rows done on the quilt and four to go but there won't be much sewing done today. I might get another row marked up for the quilting if I have time before Ruby gets here but I'd like to make a cake too so maybe not.....I shall have to see.

Coffee has been drunk so I am away to don my apron and start on my cooking duties.
Hope your weather is better than ours.

  1. I miss my bread machine it died just over a month ago, I suppose I can use the dough hook on the mixer. Love bread baked at home x

  5. It's sunny here in New York but very cold and windy. The cats don't even want to go out the door! A pot of homemade soup and a homemade loaf of bread sound absolutely wonderful right about now. Not sure what I'm making for dinner. I'll have to get creative though. Not much to pick from as I didn't get to the market today. Oh well. Tomorrow is another day. : ) xo
