I have made my first quilt top with strip blocks. This will be a "Brown Owls Finland Community Project". Our parish will send sheets and knitted or quilted blankets to an orphanage in Tanzania. When I was a young school girl and development aid was a new thing, Tanzania was a special partner of Finland and most of our help was directed there. Nowadays things have changed; material, personnel and money is sent to many different places, wherever it is most needed. Anyway, Tanzania touched my heart and I decided to make some blankets for them. The fabric with giraffe and lion sounded perfect, and this is the first top I finished. The quilt size is small, so there will be at least one more with this fabric.
My daughter Kaija is staying with us right now, this time with a skirt project (last time we altered some dresses for her). She also had time to pick some berries - quite a lot in a short time.
I baked us a pie.
4 dl plain flour
150 g butter or margarine
3 egg yolks
to make a dough, and spread it on the bottom and sides of a buttered pan or whatever you call the dish you bake it in.
Take the whites of the three eggs, and 1 dl castor sugar, and beat them to a stiff foam. Mix carefully with 6 dl fresh bilberries (not frozen ones). Fill the pan with this mix and bake at 200 C for about 50 minutes.
Have a nice week. I'm going to have.
