A very happy new week to you!
The vintage recipe for today is a sweet Old Fashioned Bread Pudding. I never used to like bread pudding because in my early years I was a waitress at a chicken pot pie restaurant, and one of the desserts we served was bread pudding. I served so much of it, that I grew to not like it, along with chicken pot pies. ;)
Well, my feelings towards bread pudding have changed, and when it is made right, warm out of the oven, it can be quite tasty! So, anyways hope you like this old fashioned one (there is a little typo in the recipe, I think it is supposed to be 1/2 c of raisins, and I would add a teaspoon of both vanilla and cinnamon), and let me know what you think if you give it a try! And, just a side note, I still can't eat chicken pot pies! ;)
I had quite a productive weekend with getting some projects completed. I made a fall table runner out of a vintage tablecloth scrap left over from making tea towels. I added some pretty vintage doilies and...
you guessed it, a pretty almond scalloped edging. I only wish I had the time and patience to do an edging all around. I don't know how those sweet ladies once did it. ;)
For over a year I have wanted to make a new ironing board cover, since the one I had was getting old, and I didn't want to buy one. So, I finally did it this weekend. It was easy to make and turned out so pretty.
I followed this lovely tutorial by Aneela Hoey. I used the sweet vintage fabric I bought last week at a thrift store, and added some cotton batting underneath. I'm definitely going to enjoy ironing more!!
I always crochet in the evenings to relax, so this weekend my goal was to make some Christmas crocheted flowers that will be part of my holiday packaging, and maybe to decorate with, too. ;)
A new stripey crocheted blanket is in progress. This one will be for my husband in his two favorite colors, grey and black. I am hoping to have it finished by Christmas, so will see.
Last week I received some pretty mail from the sweetest and talented Trish of Notes of Sincerity.
Inside the pretty package were vintage Sunbonnet Sue quilt blocks!! A sweet lady completed all these and I feel so honored to have them!
They are all so beautiful, and I just love the different colors. There are 4 of each color, and I am so excited to make these pretties into a quilt.
Thank you so very much Trish for such a special and generous gift!! They will be ever so treasured in my home! Make sure you take a sweet visit to her beautiful blog!
Wishing you all a beautiful and creative week!
