Sewing Day Accomplishments: July 7th, 2015


I look forward to my sewing day each week, here's what I got done today ...



This pillowcase dress is for a little 4 year old girl.  She wanted it to be purple!



I started stitching up some more blocks for my scrap quilt as well and finished up some hand stitching on some things that are heading out to two of my grandchildren in tomorrow's mail.

I was sewing along at a good pace when the needle on my machine broke!  I had to locate another one, get my husband to help me install it (I could not get the needle holder to release!) and then was able to continue sewing.  I discovered that I had used all my back-up sewing machine needles except one, which is now in my machine so guess what is going on my shopping list????

How To Freeze Eggs

Have you noticed that the price of eggs is increasing?

Did you know if you find a good sale on eggs that you can purchase as many as your budget can afford and freeze them?

Here's how I freeze eggs ...




Crack one egg in each section of a muffin tin, gently break up the yoke and place in freezer for 24 hours  ...




When 24 hours are up, remove from freezer and set muffin tin on counter for 2 - 3 minutes before removing eggs.   Pop each egg out of its section and place in snack baggies.  I put 2 to a baggie.




Put the snack baggies inside a freezer bag. I have 3 sets of 2 baggies in each quart size freezer bag and return to freezer.  When I get ready to use them I will open the freezer bag and take out the number of baggies I need, then close the freezer bag back up and return it to the freezer.  The frozen eggs should be good for up to 6 months which will get me through the holiday baking.  I plan to freeze some egg whites separate from the yolks as well.

When ready to use, thaw in refrigerator and use as you normally would.
