Busy Bee Feb. 10,2019

I won't be gardening anytime soon!

My latest adventure was making a gluten free sourdough starter.  Evidently it was not strong enough as this is how my bread turned out and I had to throw it away  Gluten free flour is expensive so will wait awhile before I try making bread again.

I made these gluten free sourdough muffins and I do like them so will continue to make those.  Sourdough is suppose to have many health benefits so I am hoping I will get healthier!

I also tried a GF sourdough biscuit recipe but they didn't turn out either.  I may try a different recipe later on.

One more GF sourdough item was pancakes.  I do like them and will make more.

Valentine's Day is approaching so thought I'd better get my heart runners out.

I had made two so the other one was put on the music file cabinet.  There is quilting of hearts in the middle of them.

My friend, Sue Husted gave me this little wreath years ago so I thought it would look nice hanging here.  I have yet to find a pretty Valentine's wreath for our front door.

Hubby got this rose for me.  It smelled so nice.

He also got me this Accuquilt Go for Valentine's Day.  I have not had a lot of time to play with it yet but with my bad shoulder it will be so nice not to have to use the rotary cutter and ruler so much.  He has been having to hold the ruler for me so I think he is glad too!  I am one lucky wife!

This is it out of the box.

And opened up!

Different size cubes work with it.  I chose the 8 inch one.  Does anyone else have one of these?

Gracie learned how to sew a button on in school.  She did a super job and I am proud of her.

And here is one of the buttons.  Didn't she do a great job!  I am so excited to see any of the grandkids or great-grandkids learn new things!

Of course I wanted a silly one of them also!

This is the last picture!  Honest!  I chopped the celery leaves to freeze to flavor my soups.  Thank you for taking the time to look and read  I hope you will leave a comment!  Happy Valentine's Day.  I hope cupid is as good to you as he was to me!!  Nancy  

Progress in the Courtyard!

  It was so nice to look out my bedroom window this morning and see the Clematis blooming instead of a pile of snow.  It is a rainy day agai...
