1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: 2 Lemon Loafs on: April 13, 2015 01:00:09 PM
Even though I received it over 20 years ago, I still haven't tried all of them. Like many cookbooks, I mark the ones I like, and leave the rest. I also have a "my best recipes" cookbook, with handwritten out recipes, for easier searching.
2  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / 2 Lemon Loafs on: April 12, 2015 09:36:26 AM
I first got this from a recipe book called "Company's Coming: Muffins and More"
At my first try of it, I discovered that making them one at a time is pointless. So, here's a double recipe.

Grease & Flour 2 loaf pans. Preheat oven to 350*F

1 C. Butter
2 C. White Sugar
4 Eggs
1 C. Milk
In a large bowl, cream Butter and Sugar and 2 eggs. Beat in other 2 eggs. Blend in Milk.

3 C Flour
2 tsp. Baking Power
1 tsp. Salt
2 Grated Lemon rinds
In a 2nd bowl, thoroughly stir Flour, B. Power, Salt and Lemon rind. Add to milk mixture. Stir ONLY to MOISTEN! (do not over-stir) Spoon into prepared pans.
Bake 1 Hour, or until tests done with toothpick. Remove from oven, add Glaze. Cool in pans 10 minutes. Remove to rack and continue cooling. Wrap and store (I put it in the fridge, myself, but I don't think you have to.)

1/2 C. Sugar
Juice of 2 lemons
Combine juice and sugar in a small saucepan. Heat and stir to dissolve sugar. Spoon evenly over hot loafs.

Glad to hear I'm not the only one to pack a kitchen Sink! 😄 😄 😄

Thank you, JerseyGal.
I used this bag for a year or so, but have given it away.
It's nice, it's functional, but, in the end, it just wasn't a reflection of ... me.

There! Now, it has the correct photo!

Yup. Except, I had to use a lightweight canvas to interface it; so it won't crumple into a heap.  But, it's very good looking. I'm keeping it as mine. (Even my hubby isn't getting it!)

I hadn't thought before of making a tote bag out of wool. Then, I read it in this book,

"Hold It ... " by Nancy Restuccia. Terrific resource if you can get it. (I got mine off E-Bay auction site.)

So, I bought some Wool fabric and decided to give it a try. Simplicity 9658, bag B. It's a nicely sized tote, neither too large, nor too small.

Here it is:

And the other side:

This one will remain mine. Period.
Thank you for looking.
Any feedback is welcome.

Thank you, Kaz814. The other bags are shown in a post titled "A 'Family' of Bags"

Thank you, ladybugsandbumblebees & alwaysinmyroom. I'm glad you like them.
The family I made them for likes them, too.
Bags are useful things, alright. (I'm an "accidental environmentalist" I have a dreadful allergy to plastic. Therefore, since I can sew, I made myself shopping bags.) I've found this pattern the nicest for size. It will haul your "daily load", or your groceries, and (unlike the Grocery Store bags, they aren't huge-mongous) they're attractive once done. They can be rolled up to carry nicely.
I have made others similar (one with Ladybugs!  Wink ) you can find them on my Craftster page, or enter Kwik-Sew 3526 in the search bar above.

(These are all Kwik-Sew 3526)
I found this material with a photography-type print on it, and decided that would make a nice bag for a neighbour.

Once that was decided, I thought it might be an idea to make a bag for each of her daughters. One is a reporter, the other has a great interest in Horses.

After that, I thought it wouldn't be kind to give "Just" them a bag each, and not her husband. So, I decided this one would be nice for him. (because it's kind of "guyish")

(Have you ever had a project completely take on a life of its own?) Then, decided that since I had made both of the daughters a bag, it would be surly to not make one for their roommate.

Then, their son came home from ... back east, I think it was. So, I decided to make him one as well.

But, I didn't have enough of that fabric for both sides: so, I used a similar, but different print for the other side

(Fortunately, their other son is not yet home: but I will make him one, when he gets home.)

Feedback, positive or negative, would be appreciated. Thank you
