Someone asked me what kuchen was. Well, the state dessert of South Dakota is Kuchen! It's a German dessert, somewhat like a coffee cake with custard. You have a sweet roll dough that fits into a pie pan, then a thin layer of fruit filling, then a custard made of cream, eggs, and sugar. Top that with cinnamon and nutmeg and bake it. And a piece of the cherry looks like this--
I've been trying to be motivated, but the last two days I've taken a nap. I did get in some sewing, the red and white bricks and stepping stones blocks are all together--
I will leave these hang for a while and see if I spot anything I would need to move. I haven't any border fabric picked out either. Right now the top is about 54x70".
And--drum roll here--I cut up some of my Japanese royalty fabric for Rosewillow's "cut it up" challenge. Yes, I had heart palpitations! I do LOVE that fabric! I have the segments all made and ready to be sewn together. In reading the directions, I will have to "plan" my sewing so my people are all sitting up straight.
How is your week?
