Cake, Anyone?

June 21st, 2006

I made too much, it’s coconut, would you like some? I tried my first ever Joy of Cooking recipe, from a copy that I picked up thrifting. I’m not so sure about it. I’ve had baked goods come out more moist and delectable than this, but it’s still good. Plus, it looks pretty.

Coconut Cake

And look what Head Full of Pixies sent me. Treats! She was the recipient of the patio lights in my Great Monday Giveaway. Isn’t the owl card oh-so-cute?


I’ve got the top of my quilt done, but no pictures. I’m a little frustrated. I was apparently too generous with my seams and am 30 inches shy of having enough fabric to cover the back. I’m just using plain, white cotton and wouldn’t you know there’s not a lick of it to be seen. We do not have a car, so I must wait for a New York trip or the dearest, sweetest friend to transport me to fabric world. Sigh.

    Oooh. I’ll take a slice. Could you use a sheet to back the quilt instead? (Assuming you have an extra sheet lying around…) If not, I hope someone takes you to the fabric store quickly.
