Cherry Cake

These sweet Lancaster cake stand blocks were received as part of a swap, and I have decided to put them together with alternating appliqued blocks with a cherry theme.  Now I'll have to look for a real cherry cake recipe - does anyone have a good one?

Received these darling appliqued baskets recently from another block exchange in which we made the baskets from Blackbird Designs' Cold Wind Blows book.  Just think they are adorable and will add a few more to make a doll quilt this winter. 

Its a beautiful day today and a little warmer after cold weather for this part of California - 29 degrees the last two mornings.  Thank goodness our lemon tree doesn't look too worse for wear though.  The remaining turkey is bubbling away on the stove for soup this next week.  Its definitely soup weather!
