I made my latest favorite recipe for bread this morning. It is an oatmeal, spelt bread. Can you see those canyons in the top? I set the bread in the oven with the light on to rise as I usually do, but the towel that covered them was a little too damp. It stuck to the dough and I had to carefully peel it back resulting in those valleys.
I had the heel already; it's my favorite part. I'm shortly going to make tea and have another piece. I know it's not part of my diet, but I've not made bread since spring and who can pass up up a fresh piece or two?
When it has cooled, I will slice it and freeze it.
At lunch time I had another go with my watercolors and the new Silks acrylics. Still need lots of practice.
I just finished stitching the binding onto my friends first baby quilt. I will start to hand stitch it and then take it to her to finish.
Do you like to use those little hair clips to hold it back as you go along? I find them really helpful.
I hope you're having a great Tuesday. The sun is shining and the fresh breeze is blowing through the house.
I'm off to make that cup of tea.
