Two Maidens and Dessert

This weekend felt both interminable and short at the same time. I had my office Christmas party on Saturday. The night felt like it would never end. Then waking up Sunday morning, the day just flew by. I also got a new mixer that I wanted to try out so that took a small chunk of my stitching time. Isn't it pretty? The color is called Ice Blue. I'll have to match it to a DMC color, it would look great with a light purple.

We decided to test it by using an old recipe of my mother's. It's a pineapple upside down cake. My mom was telling me that back when she got this recipe, everyone was making this cake (we loved it as kids). But after we moved to Canada, everyone was about the banana cake. All I remember was that we used to fight over those pineapples. They were always sugary sweet.

I did manage to get some stitching done on Tree of Hope the week before. My two maidens are now at the same stage. I really would love to finish this before new years, but I don't think that will happen. I will settle for getting as much done as I can.


  1. Oh, I remember pineapple upside down cake - loved it. Yours looks really yummy!
