happy days, titled by A

Hello there,
we are having a mini heat wave in England too, hope it'll last until the end of August, cheeky me! we are going on camping holidays soon and I wouldn't like to experience a flood again! :-)
It's been months since I don't see a sky so clear!

I've been baking scones, crazy I know! (un)following a recipe from here, I mean I changed a bit, I used half spelt flour and half  wholemeal flour and instead of double cream I used buttermilk, I added raisins, but currants are good too.

To brighten my day even more snail mail from Ana arrived today! I love the care she takes in every little details, she sent me one of her cute shopping bags and fridge magnets. Watch her space: she'll be opening her on-line shop soon. Thank you Ana!

Another thing I wanted to tell you about is that few of my socks went all the way to Minneapolis for a residency by ROLU at the Walker Art Center, my socks will be part of Rhiannon " Dream Shop"...
I'm quite chuffed!

Enjoy the beautiful weather.
