April 1st… Strawberries ¬†and double wedding ring update.

Strawberries are in full swing here,and my counter is full of bowls with berries. The kitchen smells so good with the smell of cake and strawberries.


I will put some in the freezer for milkshakes and homemade ice cream when the weather is hot and we are looking for a cool supper. For the shortcake I use an old recipe that is a plain vanilla cake. Here’s the recipe..


If you wish to try the coconut icing that is wonderful tasting as well.

Now for the update.. I didn’t get as far on the Double Wedding Ring quilt top as I would have like but there is still a little progress. I was able to get more rings sewn.. and started sewing the rings together.

  
It is hard to match the rings at the seams evenly, some are off a little bit . I was able to get one row done which has 9 complete ring sections,and started on row two. There will be 72 sections when top is completed. That means I have 61 more to go.


Here you can see how row two is joined on.


Have a lovely week! Deb
