Yes, those are my magnifier glasses. I find that I have to use them more and more often when doing detailed work. *sigh* I really thought that middle age would never happen to me! But it seems I can't escape it...
Last weekend I took the time to bake a Pineapple Upside Down Cake. We had a church meeting/potluck luncheon on Sunday, and the theme was Hawaiian! Some of the guys made Chicken Teriyaki, pineapple, and vegetables on the grill. Oh it was so good!
Someone also supplied fruity blender drinks.... they were delicious and refreshing:
Here is my cake before the batter went into the pans (I think it's really pretty, even in this stage):
And here is the finished product:
Prepare a boxed yellow cake mix. I add an extra egg and use melted butter in place of the vegetable oil. Pour the batter into the prepared pans and bake according to box directions. When done, loosen edges of cake with a knife, and turn out onto plate (if any of your pineapple sticks in the pan- just replace it on the cake. No one will ever know). Ta da! It's really really good.....
I also have been playing with a new quilt pattern. I experimented using fabric from my Apple Blossom Acres fabric line. I was going to just make a block or two, but I was having so much fun that I kept going and ended up with a whole stack of blocks.... Now I just have to sew them up into a quilt.
My sample fabric for my next fabric line will be here soon- I think I am going to try this pattern with my new fabric.
That's it for now. Have a Wonderful Wednesday!
