I worked in just a little stitching time this weekend...
it was french knot time:
It's the next letter in my work on the Gardener's Alphabet
(a pattern by Crabapple Hill).
This one has lots (and lots and lots) of french knots,
but I like the almost finished look.
And, the 'tropical mango' box cake mix was pretty good.
Maybe a little better the second day,
as the mango flavor was a little stronger.
I did make my own icing, and added some lemon juice -
my grand-mommas always added lemon juice to icing for fruity cakes, so I do also.
I'm not really an icing fan, and scrape it off the cake before I eat it,
but it keeps the cake moist until then.
I normally bake from scratch,
but this mix cake was good and moist.
So, my review :)
