I'm very excited. I got my sewing machine out yesterday and did a warm up exercise. I made a snowman potholder. I added my beads for the eyes, nose, mouth and coal buttons. It was a lot of fun but it's easy to see I need a lot more practice. but who needs perfection. I've got the pattern picked out for my first attempt at quilting. Next on my list is to go pick out my fabrics. That will be fun. I love fiber and fabric as much as I love beads.
If you like oatmeal, whole oat groats are better for you. Old fashioned oats, even steel cut oats are still considered too processed for macrobiotic cooking. Yesterday I cooked brown rice, wheat berries and rye together and baked a butternut squash. I warmed up the grain mixture with 1/4 of the squash for breakfast. It was really yummy.
