Sunday 19th August 2012Well I have a winner for one of my bags and that is Jodie from jellywares. I hope you like which ever bag you choose Jodie!
I had a great birthday and was very spoilt by my family and friends and the best part was I had lovely weather. My birthday is always during the Brisbane show week and is well know for grey, cold and windy weather, but this year it was lovely and warm and sunny!
I baked a cake on Thursday for Ron to take to work for morning teas and also to have with a dear friend on Friday. It is a coconut and raspberry cake. This recipe was given to me by a friend on Facebook. So thank you very much Lesley!
Coconut Raspberry Cake
Soak 1 3/4 cup of coconut in 1 1/2 cups of coconut milk for 30 minutes.
Stir in 1 egg, 1 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon of vanilla
Sift in 1 2/3 cups of SR flour and mix gently
Add 1 cup frozen raspberries and 1/2 cup of walnuts
Bake 1hour and 15 minutes at 160 degrees C.
A really lovely moist cake that isn't too sweet. And the best thing is you don't have to get the mixer out, so less mess to wash!
You may remember seeing a pattern for a dress in a post awhile back.
While on the hunt for dress fabric I found some crumpled fabric at another store and thought it would make up nice in a cool summer top for myself. The pattern I used for this is super easy and I had this top made up in a few hours while Ron was off at the football Friday night.
I have started another crochet project (without finishing the last one - naughty) and have been busy working away on this in the evenings.
I hope everyone has a great week and I will be back again in a weeks time with some photos of lovely Darwin.
