I had planned to do a lot of sewing machine work these past 2 days, but my body and I are not on the same team right now.
Stitchery is nice though, combined with a lot of tea and my feet up. It is a matter of counting your blessings, not your limitations, right ? :-)
I do have a small finish for November already, and do not have to force any finishes on this last day of November, which is Good in my book !
It is freezing cold outdoors - minus 16 degrees C + wind chill.
All this talking about baking and baking covers made me want to bake more!
Whole grain bread rolls - yummy - and we had them with fish burgers for a quick dinner today too - yummy.
There are still enough rolls for tomorrow + for the freezer.
I wish this was a photo with smell - bread rolls smell very nice!
Talking about baking traditions:
I bought this lovely box at Berlin Airport in Germany the weekend before last. I bought it for the box, thinking it might contain cookies or something, but found it contained this lovely fruit cake Christstollen.
This fruit cake has a very long tradition in Germany, according to the leaflet in the box with the cake.
I do not read German very well, but I could read that this cake tradition has roots back to the 1400 century - how nice is that!
If you by any chance has a good Christstollen recipe to share I would be a happy recipient.
My DH and I have had a slice of this delicious cake / fruit bread for our 7 pm coffee for a few days now :-)
As you might see from my first photo, the baking cover stitchery is done and I hope to work more on it tomorrow.
The small stitcheries will be part of my Christmas gifts this year.
