La Musicienne

I went to London this week  to visit a friend who is the retiring CEO of Nordoff Robbins.  I made her this wall hanging as a present.  It was from a Swiss magazine, Passion du Patchwork, which featured bags and this was on the front of one of them.

My Canada postcard arrived safely with my friend Carol.  I sent it as one would normally send a postcard and not in an envelope.  I'm loving this swap with Popular Patchwork.  Here it is....

Canada Postcard

Well it's another month and the next theme from Popular Patchwork for the fabric postcards is Canada.  I have an idea what I want to do.............but yesterday I got this fabulous postcard from Katy

It says, 'O Canada! Thank you for Martha (Wainwright - Singer), Rufus (also Wainwright - Singer), Joni (Mitchell), Neil (Young) Rush, Arcade Free (Bands), Margaret (Atwood - Writer) and most of all.............Tessa!

Tessa is one of the Forum members.

Baked a Cake

Baked another cake today.  This time I cooked it at 175 deg.  It cooked lovely...........but it did sink in the middle.  It tastes lovely tho'!  I think the right temperature will be 160 deg.  This was an all ingredients in the bowl recipe and mix with hand mixer until light and smooth.  I used 7" tins.....maybe I should have used 8".

..............'til the next time
