I am making a whole lot of progress on the four items that I am consistently working on. The secret baby blanket now has 112 of 198 rows completed. Thats 56%!
I am just knitting along on the second baby blanket.
I have been making great progress on the birth announcement also.
The border is done as are the flowers, red bird and butterfly. The only cross-stitching left is the rest of the rainbow (I need to finish the yellow and add orange and red) and some clouds. After that is just back stitching outlines and lettering.
I have been spending a few mornings each week working on the Log Cabin Star quilt. I finally have 71 of 196 star blocks completed and I have good start on the next 10.
I had a few bananas going bad, but I didn't want to make the usual quick bread or muffins. I was thumbing through a cookbook and found Sweet Banana Bread which is a yeast bread. It made two loaves. My recipe is from an old Better Homes and Gardens Bread book, but you can find the same recipe here.
I should have trusted my nose and taken them out of the oven before the 30 minutes the recipe called for. They are much darker than they should be and the bottoms are slightly burnt. The bread is extremely light and very tasty though. You really wouldn't know there was banana in it.
I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching. Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are stitching. I will be working on all of the above and celebrating my birthday.
Thanks for stopping by!
