This week I was back cooking from the Gorgeous Cakes book, an Upside-down Apricot Cake. I had to wait for fresh apricots to be available before I could have a go at making this pretty simple cake. The sponge is quite lemony and dense and I'm not sure how it will last the week, even in the fridge. It's also quite sticky so taking it to work will be interesting too. Still it tastes nice so not all bad.

I love making cushions so when I came across a pattern for an entrelac knitted cushion I had to have a go! The best thing about this cushion is that it was free. The pattern was a free download and the wool was all from my stash. The only thing I had to buy was the cushion insert.
It might look super complicated, but once I got my head round what I needed to do, it was actually quite a simple pattern. And because of the way it's knitted the only sewing up was sewing the back and front together.
I love how its turned out and it sits very well with the other cushions. If I keep this up there won't be any room on the window seat for Milo.
