I tend to spend too much time watching what you all are doing on Instagram and Blogger, when I should be stitching my own things. Anyone else guilty? Instagram really has a hold on me these days... there is just so much pretty there.
Thanks to YouTube, I learned how to do the required stitches for my borders.
I learned the herringbone stitch and the Cretan stitch. Both were very easy to learn, just not something I had done before. Don't inspect too closely, because there are a few places where my needle came up on the wrong side of the thread.
I'm still reading (too much). I try to go to the local thrift store that sells .10 cent books every week and I'm bringing in more that I'll probably ever read. But I'm a sucker for books and keep thinking I will be set for winter, should something happen that I can't get out of the house like I want.
I picked up "another" Amish recipe book last week for ten cents and I've enjoyed reading the recipes. There are a couple I want to try and wanted to share this one, to see if anyone has ever eaten this:
Chicken Pudding!(click to enlarge photo) This just sounds yummy to me. For years, I have had a taste for something that I think I ate somewhere a long time ago. I can never pull it directly to mind, as to what exactly it was that I ate, but this may be similar. I mean, it's chicken and gravy... it's got to be good, right??? I will let you know!
The chicken pudding was "ok".... you definitely need lots of gravy. My homemade gravy tasted kind of bland. If I were to make it again, I would buy the gravy mixes from the grocery store, since they have more flavor. The men liked it, so I guess it was ok.
