The cake ...

so remember the cake from Monday ...


this was it out of the oven cooling, the crumble topping sort of sunk, but didn't affect the flavour,

the recipe had you cooking off the pears in sugar and mixed spice, I won't add any of that juice next time, it also asks for 6 tblsp of mincemeat ...

I used home made plum and russet mincemeat from last year, but perhaps the whole jar was a little excessive,   very moist, but sort of lost it in the middle! 


delicious all the same, and this was all that was left after the quilting group had done with it!

honestly, only enough for 2 slices!

a lovely afternoon,  I love the look of dark skies and late afternoon sun bouncing off the trees around here ... 


which quickly turned to this ...


and then this ...


I love these moody skies ...

so, then it has been work, with some quilting thrown in for good measure, and tonight I've sewn in all the loose threads and unpinned it from the frame.  The machine is cleaned, oiled and I'm ready to load up the next one in the morning.  

Maybe tomorrow I'll be able to show you what I was talking about ... 
and some of the mail that arrived too!

Happy quilting!

I did look at the recipe cos it sounded so yummy, but decided it's beyond my baking abilities.

Looking forward to seeing what's just come off the frame, and what's going on, and to the shopping you've been doing.
