thought i'd make chloe another summer dress.
miss b will be up this weekend,
so i will give her the rufflelicious skirt and
this pink strawberry dress for her friend chloe.
just a simple sleeveless shift,
perfect for hot summer days...
with bias bound edges,
a little pocket with strawberry buttons...
and a vintage pink button
to close up the back.
then i made jam drops
from my grandma's recipe
for afternoon tea...
i used plum jam for these,
though any kind is good.
here's the recipe...so you can cook them too...
cream the butter and sugar,
add eggs and beat,
add plain flour and baking powder, mix well.
roll into little balls,
press your finger or thumb into the ball to make a little hollow,
put 1/4 teaspoon of jam into the little hollow.
bake in the oven for 10 mins or until just golden,
on 180 degrees celsius or 375 degrees fahrenheit.
make a cup of tea or coffee
and serve with warm biscuits....
