I decided to try my hand at bread. I’ve made it before. This time I made it without the bread machine. I’ve had bad luck with bread machine breads because the crusts always come out rock hard (and once I almost cut my finger off trying to cut through the crust of some bread I…Details
These are some of the new plates we got as wedding gifts. They are from the Alpico Zen collection available at Williams Sonoma. I think they really make any food look better and more appetizing. Even plain old pasta.

So I finally got my new needle plate which means I can keep working on my Sophia bag. My new needle plate has inches, not millimeters which is so much more useful since almost all the patterns I have here are in inches. The machine (Husqvarna Viking Platinum 950e) was made in Europe though so…Details
And so we continue with our sewing of the Sophia Bag. I think if I recall, I was on step 4.
