Sew Crafty Friday

I’m working a a washcloth like this one; but I’m using a varigated blue cotton yarn.

I’ve also spent a fair amount of time working on menu plans.  I hope you’re having a productive week.  I was hoping to get my wicker chair painted.  Perhaps that will be next week’s project.

See what the other ladies are doing over at Shereen’s blog.

Blessings!

My Little Butter Fingers!

My Amy and I made butter today!

I just had to share a few photos.  She was just so cute!  I don’t know when she’s had so much fun!

First, we put the heavy cream that I’d skimmed from real live cow’s milk into the Bosch mixer.  We mixed it until Amy practically squealed that it was butter.  The mixing caused the butter and the buttermilk to separate.  I poured off about a pint of buttermilk through a small strainer into a pint jar.  My Matthew, 17, immediately suggested I make biscuits…maybe tomorrow.  Here’s Little Amy putting the butter into my Grandma Bern’s old mixing bowl.

Next she washed the butter.  She absolutely loved getting her hands into it.

Washing the Butter

Finally, all the buttermilk was rinsed out. 

It was time to squeeze out the last of the water.  I drained it and put it in the refrigerator for a bit to firm up.  Then I pulled it out and worked in the salt.  Last of all, I packed it into Tupperware to keep it safe.

It was great fun!

Oh, I added a set of cards to my shop.  I have more items to come including some cute little socks with crocheted lace trim.

Idle hands are the devil’s workshop.  I’ve kept my hands busy making new things for my Etsy shop, Harvest Lane Cottage.  I’ll be listing more over the next few days.  My husband showed me how to load the photos.  Life is so full of learning experiences, isn’t it?  We laugh about me being technologically impaired! ~smile~  I do love creating with my hands, though.  Handmade things just give such a cozy feel to things.

Blessings!

I just love hand crocheted dishcloths!
There’s just something so old fashioned and homey about them.
I offer these cloths in unbleached natural cotton as well.
I’ll add photos soon.
In the meantime, leave a comment if you’d like to know more!
God bless you!
