Lace and Tea

Rather a good combination I think.

I belong to Tonbridge Lacemakers who meet on the second Saturday of the month, and we take it in turns to 'do the teas' (well some of us take more turns than others, but isn't that always the way) and yesterday I and a couple of friends had volunteered. It's not an easy task keeping everyone happy. Until I started doing this I would never have realised how easy it is to upset older ladies by not making a cuppa properly - me, I'm a tea bag in a mug girl, but oh no, that would never do, teapots at dawn if you tried that!
Fortunately (and surprisingly) it is easier to keep the old dears happy with the cakes we provide for afternoon tea - and this time I chose Ginger and Lemon

I did manage a little lace between kitchen duties, and finished a bookmark - designed by a friend, it should have been larger but I missed the bit in the instructions which said "photocopy and enlarge to 150%" - Oh dear, just as well I read small books then isn't it ;0)

tea making is an art in the older generation isn't it? I love your bookmark. Your lace is amazing.
