It is raining here in eastern North Carolina today
and our car is in the shop...
so I decided what a great day it is to sew and make a pot of soup
and cheese biscuits.
I loaded all of the fabric, ribbon, and the diapers in the washer
and went to the freezer.
NO meat...good idea to have real vegetable soup!!
I really like the taste of
Anne's Old Fashioned Chicken Base
Ingredients: cooked chicken, salt, MSG, sugar, rendered chicken fat,
modified food starch, natural flavors, turmeric
DO NOT COMMENT ON THE MSG !!!
(it is one of the only exceptions that I knowingly make)
Anne is a local cook who has a cook book
and also makes delicious/easy frozen pastry strips
that we use for "chicken & pastry" in the east.
She is a Christian and places a scripture in each box of pastry!!
The soup was delicious ...but of course, Cliff asked about the beef!!!
Well...back to my story!!
Diaper burp pads
10 pack Gerber prefolded diapers
and fabric from your stash
Iron the diapers & fabric.
Now measure your fabric to fit the 6 or so inches in the middle
of each diaper and the length ( each may vary).
Add 1/2" to your measurements
Fold seam allowances of the fabric to the wrong side and press.
Pin fabric in place.
I decided NOT to use ribbon
but used a zig zag stitch
for durability .
Done...E A S Y !!!!!

she would be excited about the first great grand daughter.
Barb, at A Chelsea Morning,
that will help you out...
and I so love her quote on the top of her blog
The sea does not reward those who are too anxious,too greedy, or too impatient.
Patience, patience, patience is what the sea teaches. Patience and faith.

Soup is ready

Would love to have you over to share some
with a cheese biscuit!!!
Let me know what tips you have
for making burp pads that might help me
out the next time !!
