Believe it or NOT!


So ... I am not entirely sure how many of you actually believed that I won yet another GiveAway, but today I offer proof of my extraordinarily good luck/blessings. On Saturday there was a package in my mail from Carrie/Miss Rosie (I am not entirely sure which one of them licked the labels) containing not only my Hot Cross Kit, but also thread, a Miss Rosie Ruler and a cool decal that will continue to remind me what it is we all should be doing.

And let's not forget the fact that it involves some Charm Packs from Moda with some Fig Tree Finery which is also a thrill for me. I already have plans for this sample that may or may not involve Patchwork Pilot Club in the fall. Ooh.


In other news that will certainly make it's way into the Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum ... I Made Bread. From Scratch. I even ground my own wheat. I am NOT kidding. You have to know that in the past, yeast and I have not gotten along. You might go so far as to say that we had an acrimonious relationship. A couple of weeks ago, I attended a class at church with a 3 hour demo from the mother-daughter team at Pantry Secrets. This particular bread makes up in one hour. Start to finish. My kind of time frame. I will save for another time some of the accompanying stories like how my wheat grinder pretty much fell into my lap and how you can make a kajillion other things from the same recipe, but for now just digest this:

I Made Bread. And it looks, behaves and tastes like real bread.

Believe it or ... not.

Yay for homemade bread! I bought my husband a bread maker for Christmas, and we haven't bought bread since then... he makes it about twice a week. Now I just need to figure out how to make hamburger and hot dog buns, and we will never need an outside bakery again!

Way cool!!! We just had a small class on wheat at church a couple weeks ago. It really inspired me. Although yeast and I have NEVER been friends. So perhaps if Simple Happy Home Mary can do it, I can too! ooxx`jodi

The bread looks great and though I do have a "favorite" recipe your "one hour" teaser has me very curious. Are you going to share the recipe. . . please.
