Weekend Adventures

This weekend wasn’t quite as productive as I would have liked it to be. But my mom is helping me to learn how to read a pattern. I can sew, but I have never really tried to do anything major. Over the summer I bought a ton of patterns from Joanne’s. One of them is a cowboy type shirt and Grim picked out white and black cotton for the shirts. Since it is winter and most of my stash of to be finished project have been finished it was time to sew. I think that we will be working on it for a couple more weeks. It is very slow going.

I cleaned the hallway. Washed the walls, floor and all the doors. Next will be the bathroom. I got 2 loaves of bread made and 2 that I only let rise once and put in the freezer. I really hope they turn out. It will be so nice to be able to just thaw and bake. Oh, and I made more instant oatmeal. The monsters aren’t complaining to much about the lack of cold cereal. I am hoping to have time this week to make more pancakes.

I still need to make cookies. Just add it to the list!

Once you get the hang of it sewing from patterns is easy peasy. It's like reading a recipe. Some brands of patterns are easier to follow than others - I had my favorites, back in the day, so I had a tendency to stick with those. As long as you know the lingo you'll do fine! [And you can look anything up online.] I can't wait to see the finished project.

Bread..mmmm - I love that you froze some of it. I bet it turns out just great. Let us know.

Enjoy your cookie making. :)
