Here's my September update for the 12 New Things Challenge that I joined up with. For those who haven't heard about it yet, Sarah Mae at Like a Warm Cup of Coffee started this to encourage herself and others to learn new skills. For August, I started doll quilts for my daughters. I have now finished one of them....
I still have to finish the second with my older daughter, but since we are doing it together, it takes longer. Here is the link for the original 12 new things post.
And here is a link to August's post about the doll quilts.
And now, onto September's New Thing....I decided to go with making flaky biscuits for the first time. I used the recipe and instructions that I found here. And it worked! They were tasty, and flaky, and fluffy. The only thing I would change next time would be to add a bit of butter flavoring, and to keep them a little taller when I roll them. By the way, I didn't use the food processor as the recipe states, but just hand mixed it. We had these the first night, hot and buttered, along with beef stew. The next morning, before we headed off to the local mountains to pick apples, we had them with an apple topping and caramel sauce I made. Mmmm, what a breakfast!
Check back in with me next month, and I might have started or completed my next skill: A fall dress....The pattern and fabric are in the picture below.
