I hosted a Tea on Sunday. Family and friends descended on my house with all sorts of food and we spent the afternoon sharing stories, drinking tea and eating all sorts of delicious stuff.
This time we had a lot of great cookies, most of them gluten free. There were meringues, coconut macaroons, cardamom snaps, mocha tea cookies and maple cookies. I was so relieved the mocha cookies didn't fall apart. I have also discovered that using almond meal in the macaroons is a delicious addition.
The Tea is a chance to show off our current crafty projects. One of my friends has been doing a Block of the Month quilt and the results are stunning. This is her first big quilting project and BIG is an accurate description. This is just the center, it still has a large border to go. I can't wait to see the finished top. The colors are wonderful; the piecing looks great. Isn't it beautiful?
bowl cozies are more versatile than I imagined. Nice hat, eh?
