Afternoon Tea


Hi all on this fab Jubilee weekend,
Just though i would pop by and show you what 
we got up to yesterday.
Beth had broken up from school a day 
earlier than Jack so we had a girlie
day baking.

In the afternoon the sun came out so we
decided to have afternoon tea
in the garden.

I wanted to road test my new Tea coszie
It's quite a simple one just knit every row 
changing colours as you go.
I used up some of the wool left over from the 
spring blanket i made.
The pattern is out of the new 
Although the one in the book had 
5 pom poms around the top.
To be honest i couldn't be bothered making 5
so i just added one.

I wanted to use my new car boot finds
as well.
This pretty table cloth i got for £2 it's got 
coloured daisy's on it and is the perfect size 
for my square outdoor table.

I also picked up this fabulous Royal
Albert cup and saucer/plate. I have never
seen anything like this before and just fell 
in love with it, so had to have it.
It's the perfect size for homemade scones
which i must say were yum.

I had a go at making scones a long time ago
it was that long ago i can't remember but i
don't think the were very good.
Anyway i had just picked up a copy of a new
magazine out called Landscape and there
leafing through the pages
i came across some scones (that look delicious)
with the recipe so i had to try.

Fantastic, delicious, perfect 
and really easy to make.
I'll not be buying shop bought ones again.

Have a super long weekend
take care
