"Sonja" (she's a Rhode Island Red and so fuzzy and soft!)
With the addition of our new baby chicks (we have all 6 now), I've really been inspired to get more into homesteading. I've finally gotten around to doing more of the baking I've been wanting to do. I made my very first fresh bread from scratch, which was more labor intensive with all the kneading than I realized! It actually turned out perfect and tasty, wow! I then made a batch of cupcakes for my "Stitch n' Bitch" group, those actually turned out tasty too! If you are into cupcake baking, you must check out Sweet Estelle's Baking Supply on Etsy, love her goodies! I just ordered these, and I adore them:
"Retro Peacock Picks"
What is your favorite homesteading pastime? Baking, gardening, sewing? I wish sewing could be one of mine, but alas, I'm barely able to get my machine threaded at this point. Since I'm in such admiration and envy of those that are skilled with a sewing machine, I created this print in their honor:
"Costurera (seamstress)" 5 x 7 Print
Hmm, with all that said, I feel a "homesteading" inspired blog giveaway coming on! Stay tuned, my friends! ;)
