Today’s blog is slightly different and happy.
I started making video’s on YouTube in November 2018 and today I made my 9th video. After some very kind suggestions, I think every now and then I will use this blog to share notes from the videos. I will also share pictures of some of the stitching that I talked about.
My channel name is Sew Grateful. I have 1,070 new friends to talk stitching with. That makes me very happy and yes, SEW GRATEFUL to have found a circle of folks with similar interests.
If you have a moment, please stop by my video and have a look. You are more than welcome. https://youtu.be/A8okw
In today’s video, I talked about my mother in law’s recipe for Banana Bread. A slice with a nice hot cup of coffee was the perfect thing on this drizzly day. Come to think about it, I have been baking this bread for over 36 years. I am now calling it “my” banana bread recipe. 🙂
3 large, ripe, bananas, mashed, 3/4 cup brown sugar (I use coconut sugar), 1/2 cup butter (I used Earth Balance) Mix together and add: 2 cups all-purpose flour (I used Better Batter flour mix, gluten-free), 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon salt. (here you can add chopped nuts if you fancy) Place in a greased and floured loaf pan. Bake at 350* for 45 minutes. Cover with foil or a lid and continue baking 10 additional minutes. If the toothpick comes out clean, it’s done. Now the waiting…………..cooling…….cool some more….then slice and enjoy!
I talked about my current work in progress, the Jane Pattison Scottish Sampler. I will now be calling it the Georgina Thomson Sampler. As her name is now stitched and the year she was born. Georgina Thomson is Mr. Right’s grandmother. I will be including initials of her children, her husband and 8 Ord Street, Scotland where the family home is located.
I shared a small moth cross stitch. I will include the blog post where I first shared about this. It is a pattern from The Cricket Collection. Here is more information if I piqued your interest.
At the end of my videos, I like to share some things I am Grateful for. In today’s line up, I mentioned that I am mighty grateful for homemade Ketchup!!!! YUM. You are just four minutes away from tasty goodness! Oh look, there are some homemade buns as well. Delightfully good.
Before I sign off, thank you again for all your kind wishes, prayers, good karma and thoughtful questions regarding my sis in law, Janis. She is on the mend and doing better every single day. Our family is mighty GRATEFUL for your concern and help.
Oh, maybe, just maybe it was the pillowcase I made her to help her feel better? “Hope you are feeling chipper soon”. (laughter is indeed the best medicine)
Thanks for stopping by today,
In this together, friends,
