Playtime in the studio

What a wonderful day!  My cousin Stephanie came over for a visit.  It was the many of first for her.  The first time at my home and the first time playing with a longarm quilter.  I forgot to take a picture so I had to dig through my pictures and find this one.  Stephanie is the blonde with all the shimmer on her shirt, ain't she  a doll.  Okay I'm a little bias, when we were younger I was her babysitter!
Here's her handy work, not to bad for the first time!
 And then we had cake!  Its called Crazy cake!  Super moist cake recipe from the 1930's
CRAZY CAKE RECIPE (NO EGGS, MILK OR BUTTER) Ingredients1 1/2 Cups flour3 Tbsp. cocoa (unsweetened)1 Cup white sugar1 tsp. baking soda1/2 tsp.  salt

Mix first 5 dry ingredients in a greased 8" square baking pan.  Make 3 depressions in dry ingredients - two small, one larger ( Pour vinegar in one depression, vanilla in the other and the vegetable oil in third larger depression.  Pour water over all.  Mix well until smooth.
