first Calling All Birds block

Sunday turned out to be just as promised, and yes, we managed BBQ, even the sunshade was needed.
Luckily we had our BBQ early, it got colder as the afternoon went on.

I took my sewing in the garden with me and carried on with the new block; I love stitching outside, the light is so much better then anything inside. 
Later in the evening I finished the first block of the Calling All Birds quilt.
I love doing applique, I like the freedom of it.

Baking Monday - 

I like making bread, I find it very satisfying; although we do buy some, most of our bread is home made.
I like experimenting, mixing various kinds of flour together.
Lately I have been making mainly sourdough types, so I keep a starter in the fridge most of the time.
Today I made a rye bread, similar to German Landbrot.

Thank you for stopping by; I wish you all a very good week, whatever your plans are.
