No gardening got done today, it has rained all day. It's perhaps a good thing really, we both felt a bit tired with all the physical activity that we haven't been used to for quite a while now.
So, instead I decided to start a quilt. I saw a fabulous quilt on Laurie's blog and she told me that the pattern is Ohio Star. I went over to Quilters Cache and found the instructions. Here's my first block
It's not quite how I wanted it to look but I did enjoy making it.
Right, about the cake I made yesterday. It was a bit stodgy and not very sweet but it was acceptable. I didn't get around to icing it because I wanted to try it and it was still warm when I cut it (mmmm yummy). I was glad that I'd added the orange to it, I think it would have been a bit too bland without it. If you want the recipe leave a comment and I'll post it on my blog for you. I will make it again as it is a good, no sugar alternative to my usual cakes.
