I've wanted to make these baby booties for weeks now.
Today was the day, and they were worth the wait.
Inspired by Scandinavian Needlecraft
I spent the whole day camped out on the couch
watching back-to-back Miss Marple mysteries
and happily embroidering. *sigh*
Two more designs waiting to be assembled.
What do you think about these felt & fleece booties?
My other victory today: successfully baking yeast bread.
I owe it all to my dear friend Tracy who put this book
in my hands. After five minutes of prep time,
I completed the starter, shown above.
This photo is the starter two hours later.
Almost looks like I know what I'm doing.
Time to bake, so the dough went from this,
to this. Then into the oven and thirty minutes later,
Look Tracy, I did it!
If you want to bake yeast bread, get this book.
This wonderful day has been brought to you
courtesy of Hurricane Irene. If it wasn't for her steady
downpour, you'd be looking at pictures of the piles
of weeds I would have been pulling instead.
