A rest day

Jamie Oliver's Lemon Drizzle Cake without the icing sugar topping.
I had a day off from toil with the Cumbria Patchworkers summer gathering.  Quite a jolly event held in a conservatory in Threlkeld. We had an enormous groaning table of goodies to tempt us at lunch time.  I made a carrot cake as a contribution and no the cake featured is not a carrot cake, you've seen photos of those before so this one is a Lemon Drizzle. http://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/other-recipes/my-nan-s-lemon-drizzle-cake

We had to make something whilst we chatted away so the choice this year was a small drawstring bag which could contain a gift or perhaps some dried lavender in a mesh bag.


I am busy clearing my den today ready to hit the sewing machines and I have an idea for some new machine embroidery. Let's hope the sewing machine God's shine on me......

By the way I have now fixed my comments so I can comment again. If you are having the same problem email me and I will tell you how I fixed it.

The cake is delicious, Dad took some up Styhead today, had to help loads of people in the mist who had no maps....
