Parimono is mostly done, just hand sewing the ends of the ties and then making the new improved obi (finally settled on a pattern, but I need to get a wooden dowel for good ironing along the length before I turn and topstitch). I did a test one last night, decent but about an inch too small because I didn't figure in seam allowance. My hakama pattern should be here soon, so I can start working on pants to go with a shorter jacket. I don't know how much that combo will cost, if the toddler sized hakamas will work, or if I can make it worthwhile.

I am so tempted to do a lined kimono, and make it the standard. If they don't take too much extra effort and I can raise the price, I might do that. But I need to finish the songs before worrying about what to name the album, so to speak.

And at a friend's request, I'm posting the poundcake recipe.

Cold Oven Poundcake

cream together
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup shortening
3 cups sugar

1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon lemon flavoring

gradually add
3 cups flour

add one at a time
6 eggs

Blend well. Pour into greased angelfood cakepan. Place in a cold oven, set at 350 and bake for 1 hour 20 minutes.

That is the basic recipe. I've added pudding mix before with good results, adding apple sauce may also be a nice touch, but it'll be awhile before I bake this again.

I just made one of these last week. But mine lacked shortening, I believe, and the temperature was slowly raised so the whole cold oven thing wasn't as much a benefit. Really, if I need to raise the temp every 20 minutes the first 30 then it's not a timesaver.
