Tea Cosies and the Yoghurt Cake

This morning I made a delicious yoghurt cake using cinnamon and honey yoghurt. I iced the cake with chocolate icing I made using 79%cocoa chocolate then topped with coconut. The only messy thing about this cake is that you beat the egg whites separately. Now I have my magical new mixer in a fabulous green I only have one mixing bowl. A second bowl is rather expensive but I might put it on my Christmas list.

This tea cosy came off the needles one day and had a new home the next. I have another cosy in this pattern on the needles now - in pink and green . I am making a larger size this time and have some ideas for finishing the top.

The vegie garden is still producing the best vegies. I have grown some of the vegies and some flowers from seed so I am doubly proud. Having a potting shed (well, its half of the bore pump shed) has made all the difference. The tomatoes are even looking good as they are protected from the frosts.

The wattle has been magnificent.

As a child I remember going for walks in the spring and there would be such an array of wildflowers. I don't see such flowers along our road here but I came across
a little posy of blue. Eventually after a few days I picked the grape hyacinths and enjoyed them in my studio. The fruit trees David planted are all looking healthy with blossom or leaves appearing. Waterwise the trees have had a good start this year.
I am off to bring inside the yarn I dyed today. I will take a photo and show you tomorrow.
