Apples were a bust this year with the early warm temperatures bringing out the blossoms only to get clobbered by several hard frosts. To compensate for the lack of apples, I am diverting my attention to pumpkins. Here is the best recipe for a pumpkin bread. It is a yeast bread that is super easy and the texture is wonderful. There are raisins and ginger in the dough. The ginger is a wonderful compliment to the pumpkin flavor.
Next month is my daughter's wedding. I got an email from her the other day announcing she had forgotten all about decorating the outside area of the arboretum where the wedding ceremony will take place. Could I make some wedding banners to block off the chairs from the center isle?
Let see, I've been collecting lace, hankies and tatting for over a year now, I'm sure I have something in my sewing room.
|Some wonderful NOS hankies. Also, some great embroidered organdy from the 1950's.|
|One of the doilies I cut up looks like a heart.|
So off to the sewing room. Three banners made, three to go.......
