Let's get this party started!

Good Monday morning! Back from walkies and ready to dive into 2019!

So, my plan was to update my goals each Sunday…..missed that deadline. But no worries, here’s a quick update!

2019 GOALS

  1. Try a new rug hooking technique once a month

    Last week I pulled out some of my vintage rug punching tools and gave them a go. Definitely a learning curve on most of them! The Columbia MInerva punch needle was the easiest to work with. I’ll post a sample of the stitches with the name of the tool on the picture. These tools are pretty easy to find and fairly inexpensive. I think it’s a great way to get started punching on a budget.

  2. Make one recipe from The Great British Bake Off once a week.

    Ok, so my first recipe was homemade English Muffins. Definitely a learning curve here as well! On a technical challenge, I think I would’ve been in the bottom five, and the bottom of those five…lol If you’d like to give it a go, here’s a link to the recipe. https://www.bbc.com/food/recipes/english_muffins_56640
