Lotus progress & September ORTs

Friends it's new moon and time to share ORTs for the month

Progress on lotus has been slow, as too many things have been happening at home - birthdays, weddings and hence outstation trips, get2gethers.. wow it has been a busy month indeed

So, here's my ORT jar
I have not segregated the ORTs from August stitching alone, hence it is the year-to-date

Here's a closer snap of lotus. I love the way it is coming along - looks like a namaste and a lotus too

That's the update from me today friends. Till next time.. take care.. keep stitching.. Be happy.. Au Revoir

Books, a birthday and cake

I had got The Bookshelf framed recently and posted the framed picture here a few weeks ago. I got just the right spot for it, right above our study area 

V turned 14 recently and we had a small celebration when my cousins were all in town. This year I decided to bake a cake for her birthday
This is a simple eggless caramel cake with caramel buttercream topped with Hershey's caramel syrup. The link to the original recipe is here. The only change I made to this recipe was to replace plain flour with whole wheat flour. I could not have even a single piece of the cake, but everybody just loved it

I have had quite a few things happening, will post each individually soon. Till then folks.. take care.. be happy.. Keep stitching.. Au Revoir
