Show and tell and share

Back as promised with some finished crafting to show. I seem to have so many half finished things hanging around at the moment. I've decided I'm not starting anything else until I've finished some of them!

This bag has been one of those things patiently waiting for a few finishing touches.



It's made from an old tablecloth that had a couple of stains on it so I didn't mind cutting it up. The top section is linen and it's lined in dark red cotton.
I will be putting it into the shop some time today when I get a chance. And it could probably do with an iron too!

From slowly made bags to quickly made buns. This bread is made with yeast but you don't wait for it to rise. How cool is that!



These were sweet and yeasty and delicious. And so quick and easy to make. I'm tempted to make them every day! I'm thinking it would make great cinnamon scrolls too, I might just try this tonight.

My friend Debra shared her recipe with me and I shall share it with you.

:: Quick bread, buns or pizza base ::

2 ½ C warm water
6 Tbsp sugar
3 Tbsp yeast
2 Tbsp oil
6 C flour (can use white or wholemeal)
2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder

Stir water, yeast, sugar and oil together. Leave for 5 minutes until it becomes frothy on top. Add flour, salt and baking powder. Mix well. Knead. Roll out if making a pizza base or shape for use as buns / bread / loaf. Paint with oil or milk (if you can be bothered). Bake at 200 degrees Celcius for 10-15 minutes.

I made 1/2 this recipe and it made 8 buns. Just enough for our family lunch on Sunday.
