Hooray it's FNSI

Boo we're going out this evening to play in a canasta competition. But hooray there'll be cake as we've been baking today.

 
This is a lemon and poppy seed drizzle adapted from a recipe on the Nordicware UK Facebook page. Drizzling the bottom of the cake before taking it out of the pan was not a good idea, but it tastes nice. I'm hoping that none of the WI ladies will spot my patchwork cake skills and just enjoy the cake.
 
 
I have been under the weather for two days and I'm just coming out the other side. I spotted tonight was Friday Night Sew in but didn't feel up to any large projects. I also spotted this little needle case on Bee Lori's instagram feed, so decided that I would make it my FNSI project. It was quick to put together from my scrap bags.
 
 
And I even found the alphabet ribbon that I knew I wanted to use for this project. Shame the poppers I need are still MIA. A pretty and quick project which I think I will send to my mini quilt swap recipient.
