This brings me to the reason I am sharing with you my bread making.
This week I came across the "baking cloth". As you can see, I use a clean tea cloth to cover my dough, but in Norway ( and may be in other countries), they are using a special cloth, which seems to be hand embroidered and specially stitched for the purpose. Isn't it a lovely idea, much nicer then my tea cloth!
The two blogs where I have seen this cloth are Hanne's and May Britt's blogs. The pattern, they are working on, comes from Northern Quilts, and the girls are doing a giveaway of the baking cloth pattern.
It is getting dark now and it started to snow. I hope it is not going to come to much. They had some heavy snow falls in the north of England, unusually early. It has been very cold, even the day temperatures hovering around 0. But it is cosy inside, the house smells of freshly baked bread and the fire is glowing.
It is time to settle down to some stitching.
