Tooth Fairy pouch

Princess Milla:

Once upon a time, (last week), way out in the great Forest of Lakes a certain little princess lost yet another tooth. But this was not just any ordinary tooth, this tooth was special because the princess, ( we'll call her Princess Milla) just did not want to let it go. It was loose for the longest time, but she would not let anyone pull it.
One day while playing and wiggling her tooth it finally came off. The princess was so happy, but also a little sad because she really wanted to keep her tooth a little longer.
That night, after saying her prayers the princess put her tooth under her pillow, and went to sleep peacefully knowing in her heart that she would get a visit from the tooth fairy.
Sure enough, the very next morning, Princess Milla put her hand under her pillow and found a very special treasure, this was no ordinary treasure, the tooth fairy left a hand written note on this treasure especially for Milla.

The Tooth Fairy:
That night after the tooth fairy left Milla's house she got to thinking, maybe Milla should have a special pouch to keep her treasure safe, just as I have a special place for all her teeth.
Well, when she finally got to her home in the Enchanted Forest she decided to call her cousin The Yarn Fairy, maybe she could help. The yarn fairy was more than happy to crochet a special treasure pouch with her magical pink crochet hook.
That same night the yarn fairy ( who happens to be a frequent visitor at Mimi's house) flew over Milla's grandmothers house and dropped off the magical pouch. The very next morning Mimi "aka" grandma went out to water her plants and found the pouch hanging on her bamboo plant. She dusted all the fairy dust from it put away safely until the next time Milla comes to visit.

The End. :)

My last deed of the day

Homemade bread
6 cups of all purpose flour
1 cup milk
1 cup water
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1 envelope active dry yeast
2 tablespoons warm water
Warm milk in a saucepan until begins to boil. Remove from heat source.
Add 1 cup of water, sugar, salt and butter, set aside.
Dissolve yeast in 2 tablespoons. water, add to milk mixture. Set aside.
Put 4 cups of flour into large bowl, slowly put in milk mixture while mixing with wooden spoon, add more flour until a soft dough forms. (dough is still kind of sticky) turn unto a floured surface and knead adding more flour until smooth and no longer sticky. Let dough rest, in the meantime oil a large bowl and put dough ball in bowl, turn oil side up. Cover with kitchen towel and let rise until double. (About 1 hour)
Lightly oil and flour loaf pans,
Punch dough down and turn unto lightly floured surface, knead lightly, divide into two equal portions, shape into loaves and put into pans, Or cut into quarters shape into balls and place on greased and floured cookie sheet. Cover and let rise until doubled in size.
Preheat oven to 350.
Bake for about 40 min. Until top is golden brown.
Remove from oven, cool in loaf pans on racks for about 10 mons.
Remove from molds and cool on kitchen towel. Enjoy!!!!!
When eaten warm with butter and a cup of tea, this bread could be highly addictive.

Think pink!!!

Will my next project be pink????
Will I sew, crochet, or knit???
Decisions decisions........


My back yard isn't much to look at these days, but my nasturtiums are out of control!!!

The Baguette bag

Almost done with my bag, I decided to line it with some toile de jouy (I think that's how it's spelled) that I had left over from a ballet bag that I made for Milla. :)
