It is strawberry season in Ohio. This was breakfast this morning. Strawberry muffins. Yum!
I got the recipe from here. As always, I read the comments to see if the recipe needs adapting. I followed the recommendations to add vanilla, cinnamon and brown sugar and to reduce the flour. This recipe is a keeper!
I'll be making other strawberry items because of this.
This is about 8 pounds of strawberries. Ed and I picked 11 pounds. I made one batch of freezer jam already and have plans for another batch today. Also in the plans are a strawberry pie, a strawberry cake and freezing a bunch for smoothies.
My spinning wheel is back in the sun room. She was moved out temporarily because to make room for Trisha's graduation party. Lena and I have been spending a lot of time together lately. I want to finish spinning this roving. It is a BFL-silk blend I bought last year at the Great Lakes Fiber Festival. The plan is to Navajo ply this. Once I see what yardage I have I'll decide what I am going to do with it. I do know I will have to carefully store it because I have already found little beasties chewing on the roving.
The Linen Top is coming along. I have about 30-35 rows to do before this piece is done. Then I sew the two pieces together and block it. My friend tells me to just toss this in the washer and dryer and it will soften up nicely. I'm a little nervous about that. I've never worked with linen before. I should have enough linen leftover for a test swatch to play with first. I'll toss that in the washer and dryer first.
After this is finished, I will get back to my Custom Basic Black.
