My creative space



I am joining in with Thursday's My Creative Space at Kootoyoo.

Sunday is judging day for scones at the Royal Melbourne Show and this is my second last practice batch. I am taking them to the park this morning and inflicting them on my friends at Mothers' Group. There are some mums and tots who have eaten a lot of scones recently.

After Sunday I am hanging up my scone cutter and getting out the sewing machine. And it is my solemn oath that I shall not utter the word scone again.

Thank you very much Kirsty for hosting My Creative Space. Its great fun seeing what everyone is doing. To see who else is showing their creative space (or to join in), head over here.

  5. I doubt there are any in your mothers' group who consider your scone-trials an 'affliction'! I'm really impressed by your singlemindedness in this scone-making malarkey.

  6. The Bug and I made your scone recipe yesterday!- our oven as broken so we took them round to a neighbour's house, cooked them and had morning tea together. Yum! Good luck with the show, and I hope the last practice run will be on Saturday!

  10. Good luck with the show, I'm so sorry that I didn't manage to get any 'double decker' secrets...but there is always next year if you will be ready to utter the 's' word again. By the way, the scones look great.

  12. Nooooo!!! Don't give up on the scone making once you've perfected the recipe! Maybe you could just make them once a month instead of every waking moment? Scone making skill is something to be revelled in, because it's not gifted to everyone. In my family it skipped a generation - my Nanna could, Mum can't, I can ;-) Maybe I should get back into it, I haven't made scones for years! Hopefully I haven't lost the knack....
