Raspberries & Roses

Last night was Knit Night again here in my cozy cottage.
Once again we snugged around my dining room table,
chattered like magpies,
laughed our silly heads off,
clicked our knitting needles,
weilded our crochet hooks,
solved many a world problems
and ate scrumptously divine confections like
RASPBERRY WHITE CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES
baked by my lovely sister
~BRIDGET~
{Thanks again ~ they truly were to die for!}
Baby Sister has her own cupcake business and makes up all her own recipes.
She even has a cookbook soon to be published.
WAY TO GO SIS! :)))
And, of course, one indulgence just wouldn't do so...
our sweet little
~MISS AMELIA~
baked these Heavenly
ROSE COTTAGE SCONES
Complete with Strawberry Jam
And Oh My Goodness Gracious!
They were a pure delight to the senses.
Not only did they melt in the mouth,
they smelled like
ROSES
Mmmmmmm............AAAhhhhhhh........
Divine :)
You Girls spoil me {and attempt to fatten me up perhaps!}
But I must say I LOVE YOU FOR IT!
Oh! And there was some Yarn Play involved as usual.
I can prove it.
Well, I guess this basket just sitting there doesn't actually prove anything.
Other than I do have a current work in progress.
And, admittedly, I was a might busy with the goodies and tea drinking end of the evening.
But.....
well....
you'll just have to trust me ;)

  2. Sounds like you had a fun night. Nothing like some tea, cake and knitting to put the world to rights :)

  5. What a treat to take a moment to visit in your lovely cottage. It has been mostly work and little play...making me a very dull girl. Is it my imagination or can I smell roses and vanilla?

    Hugs and kisses. Genie
