Friday in the Country

thread and needle

1.Sewing: don’t have a good thread match?  Try light gray!  

2. Save slivers of bar soap: they‘re great for pattern marking on fabric. 

3. Use bar soap to make drawers slide easily – just rub it over the sliders.  This also works well on sticking sliding glass and closet door tracks.

4. Clean out an empty, large spice container and fill with flour.  Great for flouring cake pans.

These are fun: For a cocktail party, or, if the little ones are stuck in the house for yet another snow storm, make some of these for a "party" atmosphere:.  Mini Shish Kebabs.  Soak toothpicks in water for 10 - 15 minutes.  Thread onto the picks, cooked, cubed ham and pineapple or chicken and dried fruit, ham and maraschino cherries and grill ..  add cubes of cheese when ready to serve. Use your imagination! You might marinate chicken bites in a mixture of teriyaki and garlic pepper, then grill with pineapple or peach bites.  Serve while still warm.
