Tea Time.......love it!
However I do enjoy spending time with our girls (and our boys when they are interested) over coffee and tea companionship together. This week however we were blessed with a little more specialness in our tea time treat.
Bernadette has been wanting to participate in our Orchard House Circle, which sadly we haven't been having lately, for some time.
As Bernadette works during the day and evenings are difficult we decided on Saturday afternoon to have this girly time together.
We had the most wonderful time!!
We each of us worked on various projects we have been doing.
Bernadette was knitting some surprise booties for a special little guest arriving soon.
I worked on my crocheting of granny squares and my embroidered singlets.
Autumn was working on her knitted scarf
Eden worked on her embroidered table runner
Vellvin was casting off her knitting. She is a beginner knitter and after me casting on 25 stitches she managed to add another 100 stitches!!!!!!!
Vanilla cake with cream and strawberries
Cucumber sandwiches with cream cheese or mayonnaise
A custard tart .......bought I am afraid
These are the days that I cherish, spending time with those I love and care about. Sharing the process of depending relationships with those who are like minded.
I especially love the relationship I have with our daughters as they grow and mature. The emerging, more adult relationship as they continue to spend time developing skills and communication with me.
Is there anything more special than this in the role of a mother?
Blessings to you and your homes,
