Here is my lovely apron won in the giveaway, which arrived yesterday, much to my excitement! It was wrapped beautifully in tissue paper and tied with the flowery ribbon you can see in the photo.
Here it is hanging on the door.
A close-up of the two different materials used in its creation.
With the apron, there was a very thoughtful hand made card.
In the apron pocket, there was a surprise present of this crocheted egg in very Spring-like colours. Again, huge thanks to Elizabeth of http://mrsthomasinatittlemouse.blogspot.co.uk/ for this wonderful gift.
Once I had received the apron and pranced about in it for a while, I decided I needed to bake something to christen it with. Scones were deemed to be the ideal choice and then this developed into scones with cream and jam for a cream tea at the morning break.
I made two batches of scones - the ones above were made with vegan marg and soya milk (I nearly had a catastrophe due to not remembering milk was a major ingredient in scones and promising to make vegan ones specially, but luckily, the local shop was open and even more luckily, they had soya milk!)
The finished scones, some vegan, some vegetarian. I took them to work today and added some Channel Island very thick double cream and raspberry jam. I have to say they tasted wonderful! The vegan option was vegan spread and raspberry jam, but from the comments later, they were yummy too. So, my gorgeous apron has been christened and we have enjoyed (rather too much in my case) a proper cream tea. All in all, two very good days.
