While baking I found all my baking covers. I am not sure if that is the correct english name on it. In norway we call it bakeklede/baksteklede - bakeduk/baksteduk. I remember both my grandmother and my mother having these with embroidery on. So it is an old Norwegian tradition using embroidered baking covers.
The first one I will show you was a Christmas gift from a friend some years ago. On the baking cover it is embroidered the word Quiltebakst (quilters bakery).
This is another baking cover I received from a bloggerfriend in a swap. I like it very much because it is so big that it covers a lot of rolls while rising.
But this is the cover I love the most. It was a gift from my DD several years ago. She did the embroidery at school when she was about ten years old. And she gave it to me and I treasure it so much. It has been used so much that it starts to get worn out. My DD is now 22 years old so perhaps it is my turn to make her a baking cover for her. And I want to make a new one for myself too.
I have this pattern (oooops, it is three patterns on the table). It is a new pattern from Northern Quilts with a cute stitched baking cover. I am going to trace the stitchery now.
I know Hanne also is going to blog about her baking covers later this week.
And why is there three patterns on my table. Come back later this week and you'll know :)
Saying for today:
"HAPPINESS IS HOMEMADE"
