Finished Quilt and Some Bread


I finished Youngest's memory quilt today (with the help of Oldest who used it as an opportunity to learn how to use the sewing machine).   You can definately tell that the squares weren't cut straight and that some of the sewing was done a little lop-sided but it was worth it to get the older two involved in something for Youngest and they were so excited to see it finished. 

I also got some bread baked yesterday.  It was supposed to be enough for the rest of the week but, as usual, the first loaf is almost completely gone already.  I guess nothing beats fresh baked bread :)



Now that I've fed the family, I'm off to feed the dogs.

What a great MOM you are! The memory quilt is a wonderful idea and getting the older ones involved in the project just makes it better!

The bread looks yummy too. I've fallen off the bread wagon lately. I used to bake one or two loaves every weekend, but now that the garden is in full swing, that takes up most of my time. We a lot of soup in the winter and bread is a standby. But we eat a lot of salads in the hotter months. Lord knows we can stand to skip a few slices of bread!
