I’ve been wanting to make this hat for a while. It’s super sunny all the time in Colorado, and given that I burn easily, a nice hat is a lovely thing.
I guess this is a tutorial of sorts–really, it’s more just me showing the process that goes into making pulled strudel. My family has been making this for 5 generations that we know of, and who knows how many before in Germany. I love making it…I get to think about my great-grandma pulling the dough across her red ice formica kitchen table that was her only workspace in her little kitchen. This particular day I was making it for my Bible study group at church.
Here are the apples all diced, and cooked down until very tender with a pinch of salt, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, ginger, and dried sour cherries. A lot of recipes call for the apples to be raw, but I think they ultimately have a better flavor if you cook them first.
Happy New Year!
I finally finished the quilt for my Dad for Christmas after Christmas. This is from Amy Karol’s book, Bend the Rules Sewing.
I think I will take a break from quilting with my machine for a while. I have a portion of a yoyo quilt in a closet that has been on the back burner for too long. I love seeing all of the yoyo’s joined into a full quilt. It’s a lot of work, but mondo gratifying to see all these little bursts of color gracing a bed or a couch. I need a good cup of tea before I start thinking about wee fabric circles.
