Learning new things

I’m going to be making pie crusts and blind baking them for haupia chocolate pie and a blueberry pie. I’m going to make the blueberry with a crumble topping. I’m also going to make cream puffs. Mom wants a white chocolate raspberry cream puff, and I also want to make a key lime cream puff. Though, I need to get more white chocolates and graham crackers.

So today, mom and I went to my dads and visited. We went to Jo-Anns Fabrics after getting stuff to make masks, and I got some fabric to make an apron. They have free kits so people could make their own masks. I found a pattern online on how to make a 50s inspired apron that I want to make. Maybe I should pull the sewing machine out of the storage unit and learn to sew using that, or I’m going to be sewing it by hand, which I don’t mind. I’ve done that before and made a backpack that lasted more than five years. I also want to make an apron for my nieces. I think that’d be so cute on them.

And so it begins

Measuring cloth out for masks, and then I’m going to measure things out for aprons. I found a pattern at Jo-Ann’s for a purse I really want to make it but first the masks and then the aprons. I’m following the instructions for the masks from this site. Mom’s going to show me how to use the sewing machine. She’s taught me before, but I only sewed a couple lines I didn’t full-on practice. I’m determined to learn how to use the sewing machine this time.

Mom and I spent yesterday cutting out the fabric for face masks. We’re going to finish doing that today. What we don’t use for masks mom wants to make into a blanket and apron. Mom’s going to show me how to use the sewing machine today. I’ll probably take breaks to make pie crust so I can get that made finally and the cream puffs. When I went to Jo-Anns, I found a mini bundt pan for $7.00 marked down from $29.00 I was so happy when I saw that on clearance.

I’m going to make mini lemon bundt cakes. I know they won’t take that long to cook, so I think the most time-consuming part with be with mixing up the batter. I’m trying to do as much as I can that makes me happy before I’m knee-deep into homework and won’t think about anything else. I’ll definitely take pictures of the first mask I finish lol. It’ll be the first thing I sewed using a sewing machine.

We’re getting closer to school starting. I’ve watched the videos I need to for ASL. It’ll be interesting going to class on zoom, especially on Mondays sense my dogs love to bark at anything and everything lol.

I got some of the masks sewed, but they still need the pleats, so I need to iron them, then sew them again and put the ties on them.

I’m making milk and honey bread. Though I added more honey in it than the recipe called for. I really wanted it to taste of honey. My arms were hurting from all the kneading I did to it. I kneaded it for a good 5-7 minutes.

Wow, I just realized I haven’t written on here much this week. I’ve been so focused on getting ready for school to start and sewing that I forgot lol. So I guess this week is a short post. I’ll try to have more to say in my next post.
