A Full Day

Finally some quilting!  

I did about half of the quilt this afternoon before I had to call it a day.

I made several star blocks this morning before I met with friends at church at 9AM.

We met to make bread for our new "Bread of Life" ministry.  We made 22 loaves of Whole Wheat Oatmeal Quick Bread.  It is a very simple recipe with just 7 ingredients.  We have four large ovens that hold 3 loaves each so we were done baking at 11AM.  We also made one loaf for us which we enjoyed while waiting for the loaves to cool.    
Two of the gals wrapped and bagged them while the rest of us cleaned up the kitchen. Three men will will deliver them this afternoon.
We plan to meet again in two weeks to bake again.

Oatmeal Whole Wheat Quick Bread

1 cup rolled oats, grind in a food processor
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 Tablespoons honey
1 Tablespoon salad oil
1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.  Combine dry ingredients in large bowl. In separate bowl dissolve honey in salad oil and add milk.  Stir into dry ingredients and put into loaf pan that has been sprayed with Pam.  Bake at 450 degrees for 20 minutes.  Remove from pan and cool.
We sprinkled the batter with a few oats before baking.

So this afternoon after a short break,  I started the paintbox quilt.  And that for me is a full day!

Finally got my computer back to working thanks to neighbor and manager at Staples in Wilson. Love the back and I want to make a smaller version of this. Of course I want to make all your quilts. Baby shower for Karen today.
Then maybe I can get back to sewing.
