I had two students in the Pillowcase Class this morning. The first thing I do in class is make a pillowcase as a demonstration. Since Bill has a sock monkey collection, I decided to make him sock monkey pillowcases.
Each of the two students finished up two pillowcases. Here are the first ones.
And the second ones.
After class I came home and worked on sourdough bread. I bought sourdough starter from King Arthur Flour and this was the first time I actually was making something with it. I was excited because the evening class had been cancelled since no one signed up. I was ready for an evening in, having dinner with Bill and getting some quilting done.
At 5:50, I got a call from the shop saying two students were there. What!! They didn’t sign up for the class, they just showed up! Of course, I had to go and teach again. So much for the nice dinner. I told Bill when to put the bread in the oven, grabbed a couple of chicken tenders that he was finished cooking and off I went.
If I had known I was going to teach again this evening, I wouldn’t have made both of the sock monkey pillowcases this morning. Since I had to make another one tonight I made a Halloween one for Emilio.
One of the students liked the Halloween fabrics so she made two Halloween ones of her own.
The other student made a football one and then a floral one.
When I got home, we had sourdough bread and it was great! I made two loaves so we will have more for sandwiches and toast. Yummy!
