Heritage Red Velvet Cake

As you all know from my previous post, I love collecting fabrics, but I also love, love, love collecting and trying out new recipes. I found this Heritage Red Velvet Cake recipe and just had to try it out today. Awesome!!!! You can find the recipe by clicking here.

Now, if you stopped over to visit Sprinkle Bakes to see the recipe of the Heritage Red Velvet Cake, you've seen how beautiful that cake looks. Perfect for your Valentine don't you think?

I followed the recipe dividing the batter between three cake pans, baked, cooled, cut into heart shapes, made the cream cheese frosting (delish), frosted, dusted with the cake crumbs and this is how my cake looks:

It takes as good as it looks!!!

A Little Organizing

It seems that every year I determine this is the year to get organized and every year it seems that I fall short :(

I've been doing a lot of researching drooling over sewing room photos on the internet and I need to say I became motivated to sort through, refold, and organize my stash of fabrics. Quite amazing how much I have accumulated over the years. Here are just a few photos of how far I've gotten.

This is not even all that I have left to do. My problem is not really the large pieces, it's the scrap pieces I have. Any suggestions on organizing them?
