I made a lime and coconut cake. I usually leave it uniced but I made the fuss of topping it with some cream cheese frosting and some snapdragons for decoration. I'm glad I did. I'm also glad I made the effort of packing proper plates and cake forks. It made the event feel more like an alfresco morning tea by the lake than just a quick picnic at the dam.
I also gave my mother her Mother's Day gift. A set of 6 quilted placemats. I used random blocks that were tucked away in the sewing cupboard. I thought it would be a quick job to whip them up afterall, the hard part of making the blocks had already been done. Not so. The quilting took ages and many bobbins of thread. I don't want to have to fill another bobbin for a little while especially mid-seam...grrr.
Being away from the computer I have missed the problems that blogger must have been experiencing. Thankfully.
