Day 37 Friday May 1st.

One of two  African Violets that sit on the coffee table in the lounge. I have one upstairs on my dressing table too. They all have purple flowers....must look for a white or pink ( have had them in the past )

My machine that I made the cover for. I can assure you the cover IS square, its just the machine is higher at the right and wider on the left.  Here it is with it's new cover. Note the pockets.
 I think anything too big or heavy will make the pockets gape. I'll know after I've used it for a while.
 Nice to hear from you Molly. The bread recipe is very simple. I use a Breville Baker's Oven Bread Maker and cook this on the first option Basic Bread.
* make sure you paddle is sitting upright.
 Into the bucket put in this order:
 1 tblsp of oil
1 tblsp of Sugar 
1 teaspoon of Salt. 
 1 1/2 cups whole meal flour
 1 1/2 cups plain strong flour
 1/2 cup of sultanas
 2 tablespoons of all spice
 1 tblsp of cinnamon
 2 tblsps of sesame seeds 
 2 tblsps of sunflour seeds.
2 teaspoons of granulated yeast
 1 1/2 cups of warm water
 set going  - machine will do the rest.
 You could alter the quantity of spice or seeds or add something else
 ( bonus - it smells great while cooking )

What a pretty machine cover Ali - my own machine has gone on the blink (a 1975 Singer!) and needs repairs. I don't make clothes anymore but sure would have like to use it to make washable fabric masks these past weeks!
Stay well - be safe.
