IHSW weekend

Every month stitchers from everywhere gather virtually to do an IHSW (International Hermit and Stitch Weekend). This event always takes place on the third full weekend of the month. Go to Joysze's blog if you're interested!

I subscribed for the first time, but I must admit that I didn't "produce" much stitching wise! Two lovely (but also very lively) daughters and house chores kept me from my beloved stitching :-)

On the cooking front, I made a banana cake. Fun, easy to do and ideal for using a couple of overripe bananas (I had three almost black ones in my fridge :-). I have the recipe from over here.

First time I made this cake it was a little bit "hard baked" at the edges (I had to put the cake too long in the oven because it didn't dry enough inside), so this time I used a normal form and not the traditional cake form! This is after the tasting session by other family members ;-) And yes, the darker colour on top is only the cinnamon sprinkling (not overly baked ;-)

with cellophane covering ;-)

Hope you stitched as well last weekend!?

Have a nice day!
