Fridays are for thinking about anything but work. So grab a button from my sidebar to play along. Before I start philosophizing I have a PSA:
Is not a lie
Birthday party tonight for a friend. This is an ironic cake because she is not a rainbows/pink/sprinkles kind of gal (not that there's anything wrong with that). I used my favorite chocolate cake recipe from the Whisk Kid blog. I have also made that cake with the salted caramel and whipped caramel ganache and it is DIVINE. But this time I went for a lighter approach using strawberry whipped cream. There is also some strawberries sliced up in between the 4 layers. YUM!
As a relative newcomer to the quilty/bloggy world I have noticed that my quilt skills/inclinations are seeping into all the other things I do. For example,
- I used to just wear solids, now I wear lots of prints and feel very plain Jane if I am wearing solids only.
- My cake decorating has been influenced a la rainbows etc.
- I am better at arithmetic although I still keep my trusty calculator at my cutting table. I use a Ti-89 graphing calculator. Overkill much?
How has your quilting/crafting influenced other aspects of your life?
Happy weekend folks. I am looking forward to good weather, rest, and many happy hours at my sewing machine this weekend. But first, CAAAAAAKE!!!
