I think this looks a bit better now....quilting will make a difference too...
Resident Chef has been playing about in the kitchen again. How I wish we had smell-o-vision on computers because these smelled absolutely divine (taste pretty good too!)...
It appears there is an end to all things and I'm sorry to announce that Pam Kellogg has decided to give up publishing the 'Crazy Quilt Quarterly' magazine. It's sad to see it end but she has other things she would like to pursue and there are only so many available hours in a day. You can find out more if you go to her blog post found HERE. Those of us who love crazy quilting owe Pam a huge debt of gratitude for all she's done to encourage the development of crazy quilting....as well as Pat Winter who originated the magazine.
- THIS is something that would be very handy to have, particularly these days! The tutorial is there (scroll down) or you can purchase a PDF for a small fee.
- HERE is some fun eye candy for you to scroll through.
- There are some good tips HERE (plus links to some patterns) for using jelly roll fabrics. And a whole raft of links HERE to more pattern ideas!
- THIS quilt (scroll down to see the red plaid) caught my eye as being something fun for guys....or it would be wonderful for at the cottage or cabin.
Today the quote is from Jane Goodall..."My hope for the future is that we learn wisdom again"
Wow..even a shadow of the truck in the water.ReplyDelete
I'm impressed by the bread too. My son just gave some starter he was given and the instructions but I'm not sure if I want to invest the time. What did your husband bake the bread in? I ask because the instructions I have require a cast iron pot.
That reflection in the water is the one thing that I'm concerned about. Still not sure I have it right but hopefully the quilting process will improve it.Delete
I know I already answered your question re the container Resident Chef uses but thought I'd repeat here in case someone else is interested. He just uses regular loaf pans....an expensive (!!!) cast iron pot is not necessary unless you are really in love with that round shape that traditional sourdough normally is.
Your truck is awesome!ReplyDelete
Beautiful bread. Sourdough is on the list.ReplyDelete
Sad news about Pat. I hope someone carries on the magazine.
Sourdough is my favourite so I'm always happy when I smell it cooking.Delete
Yes, it's too bad about the magazine but Pam has done it for a number of years and I guess it's time for her to move on.
WOW! The rust on the truck looks very real and textural. Your progress is really bringing this to life. great links and thank you. Learning Wisdom would be a very good thing.ReplyDelete
Yay - if it looks real then I've done my job! Thank you. We could all benefit from a good dose of extra wisdom from time to time.Delete
That old truck is looking so good. How nice that it just happens to be parked at water's edge. I love sourdough bread.ReplyDelete
Thank you - I'm discovering I like trying to recreate old rusty vehicles just as much as I like old buildings. And I'm with you in the love for sourdough bread!Delete
You amaze me with your talent to turn a picture into something so natural looking. I love how you have soft colours of truck and trees blended into the water.ReplyDelete
Love sourdough but loaves bought from most shops have no sour flavour. Could you send a slice please ;-))
You are blessed to have a great Chef.
Awwww - thank you! If the mail between our countries was on the ball I'd happily send you some (but don't think it would get through customs unfortunately). Yes, I'm blessed, but please don't tell him that because it's sure to go to his head!Delete
You have worked miracles on the reflection. There will be many who will miss Pam's magazine. Oh to have a slice or two of that yummy sourdough bread! You are a lucky woman, Mary Anne.ReplyDelete
Yep, I'm lucky and I'm the first one to admit it. Mind you I think he cooks for self preservation because I'm awful at it. The magazine will no doubt be missed but it's getting harder and harder to find content to put into it so I think it's time.Delete
This landscape is really starting to take shape nicely as the details are added. Very sorry to hear about the closure of the Crazy Quilt Quarterly it was a lovely magazine. The bread looks delicious! Have a lovely weekend! Christine xxReplyDelete
I always like the landscapes better as I keep adding things. There's always a period when I truly want to scuttle the whole thing but I know once the extras get added it comes around (at least so far....there's bound to be one that will defy me at some point). Yes, it's too bad about the magazine but Pam only has so many hours in her day and it's proving to be difficult to juggle everything.Delete
I can't tell what you've done to make the reflection hazier, but that and the change in trees does make this look better. And I thought it looked great in your last post! This might be my favorite, yet! FWIW, I'm pretty sure I can smell that bread...ReplyDelete
Each little step makes it look better - at least IMHO it does. Interesting that you're finding it to be a favourite and it's not even done yet!Delete
How can you not want to stay home when your house smells that good? Way to go Chef.ReplyDelete
I must admit that good smells come from Resident Chef's kitchen quite regularly, but bread is the best!Delete
