A productive day!

Yesterday was one of those days where you get many things started, but not many completed! I started the laundry.....but, that is NEVER really finished is it? I made 2 loaves of white bread, 2 loaves of wheat bread (Check out my Bread Tute) and 1 liter of Yogurt. The kids have already eaten both loaves of White bread...of course!

Started making 2 covered cork boards with my Alexander Henry fabric. Learned that my machine will sew through cork with ease. I still need to add trim to this one, and sew the other. I thought they'd be good in my studio. Maybe I'll hang up some of the patterns I have lying around!???!
Finally got to work on my Amy Butler bag. It is done....except for the inside...pooh! I love the bag, but I'm not sure i'll ever make another! They're tough!

Here stands poor little Betsy, my singer featherweight, she's such a trooper! She's always there for me.....even when she has to live in clutter. That is the one thing that I always make...a mess!

Wow, how can anyone keep up with you? You are really one of those SUPER MOMS. I love the purse and corkboard. How is the yogurt? Did you make plain or fruity?

The yogurt is plain, but the kids like it best if I mix sugar and vanilla in it, then freeze it! It almost has a lemon flavor. Yummy goodness!

Love the covered corkboard idea. Thats a great project.

Thanks for visiting my blog, too.

The bread looks so great.

Love the Amy Butler bag!! I have been wanting to make one, but they do look difficult.

Love the corkboard too! I have the same fabric in my stash...just brown instead of blue.

Thanks for visiting my blog!

You did a great job on the bag, I always want to make an A. Butler bag, but the patterns seems always so involved!
