Fabric

I never seem to find anything decent at op shops or garage sales. So today I was excited to find this at the local markets. Enough for a couple of bags I think.
My order of more Heather Bailey Freshcut fabric and some other wonderful fabric arrived.
I know I don't have the best cooking presentation, but the taste made up for it. An upside down plum cake, using the yummiest plums from the market this morning. I don't usually make a lot of cakes. It is so much more fun eating them when you don't know how much sugar or butter is in them. The syrup on top alone had a cup of sugar and 75g of butter. We decided it had past the point of being really unhealthy so we poured half a carton of cream over it and ate it. It did have fresh plums though, that has to count for something.
