A New Bag and A Lemon Cake

 When I woke up this morning I was feeling pretty crummy. I have gotten a terrible chest cold and didn't feel like doing anything other than lounging on the sofa and reading or crocheting. Then I checked my blog list and saw that Lucy 'In The Sky' had posted. She had a photo of  lemon drizzle cake on her site. I love lemon cake of any kind. Since I was feeling crummy I thought lemon crumb cake would do the trick for me. This is what I made.
I know it looks a little funny, however, it is lemon cake with a crunchy crumb crust baked into the top and then sliced in half and filled with a cream cheese whipped cream mixture. Really, you can't go wrong. I had some before dinner. He he.
 I have become a moderator for the Everything CAL group on Ravelry, and this week I started the first CAL that I have run all by myself. I finished my project yesterday.
I rewrote some of the pattern, but the basic idea came from this lovely blog. Nilla makes really nice things and everyone in our group chose this bag as our project. I love it. I am going to line it so I can use it tomorrow.
  That was my Sunday. I hope everyone had a great weekend. I will see everyone for Tuesday's Tallies.


  1. Sorry to hear that you are feeling a bit under the weather... but glad that you were able to force some cake down... it was obviously for healing purposes! I love your bag.. I'm popping over to Nilla's blog right now... have a lovely week Kashi:)x

  2. Gosh that cakes looks good! Your bag is awesome! Even feeling bad you have gotten a lot done, bravo! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  3. I love the bag, and I have to admit I don't care what a cake looks like, as long as it tastes delicious!

  4. Yummy, yummy cake, it's making me hungry!
    Gorgeous bag as well, I love those gentle colours. Bags are so satisfying to make aren't they?

  5. Hope you're feeling better today.
    Love the bag, and the cake!! Judy xx

  6. I wouldn't have spoiled the cake with dinner! It looks and sounds simply scrumdiddlyumptious! :)

  7. Warm Healing (((HUGS))) I hope you feel better quick and the cake looks yummy. I want some! LOL I am rather tempted to head for the kitchen right now. The bag looks fantastic. I was just reading your changes a little while ago and am going to attempt to get started today. I have finished weaving in all ends and then noticed that in fact I made 3 of four different colour combos instead of 4 of 3, Ah well. It is going to have to do. LOL

    1. I did six color combos in all. I think yours are pretty and I can't wait to see the bag.

  8. Wow, it's such a strange feeling to see "my" bag made by someone else... Well done, it looks great! :) And thank you for your kind words about my blog as well.

  9. I have nominated you for an award in this blogpost:
    I hope you have fun with it :) x
