Where have I been is the question. I seem to always be doing something but never anything important. A little knitting here , a little sewing there and only as little cleaning I can live with.
I have started to walk again and am listening to Stash and Burn. These women talk alot about patterns and different kinds of yarn. Often I have no idea what they are talking about, but I really like their voices. Weird I know!

Made some bread, five loaves to be exact. Gave some away to friends and family. Greg and Leslie will be recipients of organic wheat flour I grind. Lezlie has some very good laying hens and is kind enough to keep Eric and I well supplied. My bread recipe is from the Urban Homemaker. I have used this recipe for years and it never fails.

I made this apron, it reminds me of my Grandmother Nellie. Here is a site to review some Free Apron Patterns. Sorry about the flash in the picture.

This pattern is called Church Ladies. I bought it at a Quilt Store in Northern Colorado.

Hope all who read this blog, especially my daughter in China has a wonderful week.
8 months to go.

I've been wondering where you are too.... I like the Apron. Been knitting up a storm. It's cold here, but they turned on the heat... which means no more purple hands while knitting.
