Todays baking

I crochet the bread basket yesterday knowing we will use it tonight .

I made the dough last night and this is my oats & pumpkin seed bread baked

 Bruschetta , just a wonderful soft dough nice to work with and so simple

our family and friends favorite Tortellini salad

 and last my Black Forest Cake- Schwarzwaelder Kirsch Torte ! This will be my highlight for tonight besides welcoming my friends son and his new wife back to the US after two and a half years living in Australia !

Breakfast and updates

As of today I have my end of the month (three month ) up date for my sky scarf and my weather blanket.
 the kids are still sleeping and to not make any noise I just grabbed this bag of yummy`s for breakfast !

 three month

 I decided to use different colors of beads for the rainy days

 You can tell it is getting warmer ! 10 days of snow in the last three month ,symbolized by the white yarn .

Last block finished

The beginning......
I was a little disappointed when I first saw the block, I had loved the work and feeling the upper right corner garden of flowers and it`s surrounding patches brought to the fabric.

 to bring this block together I used the same colors on my lace seam treatment

this lonely flower got a few leavesI wanted to lighten  the contrast of the dark green and used several of lighter green shades for my leaves

my little flower basket

 and again I mimicked the wonderful seam treatment with my pearls and added the lace  with yellow beads and purple  embroidery

this was my challenge it took me a while to find the right middle part of this patch, bling flower and a charm bee finished the lace leaves, 3-D flowers and my SRE

 The End !

Baking and cooking

 I made Cheese/ Quark to bake my German Cheese Cake

 it was awesome !

As always this bread just bakes wonderfully in my Dutch oven, Oats and Pumpkin seed

  Made Maultaschen ,a Noodle dumpling filled with ground beef and spinach , boiled first, cooled, sliced  and than fried with eggs  and our German potato salad

 and here is todays best ever Knoedel made out of bread, cheese and spinach

 Mushrooms, spring onion and heavy cream sauce

 it was finger licking good !
 just realizing I must be homesick with all this German - actually Schwabian Food! specialty from the Stuttgart -my Hometown -Baden Wuerttemberg Region !

My Wolves Quilt is making its way over the big pond.....

I made this quilt a little while ago and now packet it up to mail it to my dad . Our last name is Wolf and that's a perfect way to show it. My mom and I both love to cover the couches with quilts and it was time for a new one for my dads side. I have almost finished the one for my mom but will take it with me when I go home to visit .
