I made up this little prototype drawstring bag this week using some leftover drapery linen that I bought to make a cover for my calendar earlier this year.
Also, I've been using my old pinking sheers more lately. I "pinked" out this "D" from fabric that I had fused recently. Then ironed it to the linen and machine quilted over it to secure it.
Now, who do I know that has a "D" initial, that I can give this to?

The instructions that came with it explained in detail, how I was to tend to it for 10 days. Mid way through I had to add more ingredients, then mush daily, and now it's day 10. I get to divide my starter and make my two loaves of cinnamon bread.
If you live near me, and would like an Amish Cinnamon Bread starter, let me know. I have one more to give away...
PS: It's cooked now.. It's delicious.

I strive for 10,000 steps a day. My first 6000 steps are easy. I love to walk our local train bridge, now converted to part of the trans Canada trail system. I have no idea if I achieve the other 4000. I don't think I do. It's only 5 steps from one side of my sewing room to the other.
