I had a very fine Easter weekend with my family, I thoroughly enjoyed it. We were very lucky with the weather, sunny with a few clouds, still, crispy cold, but that didn’t matter. Just put on your winter coat again and off you go hunting for Easter eggs! I baked a Linzer cake for Easter, it is one of my favourites because it is made with German plum jam, which comes with spices such as clove and cinnamon. It’s not a Christmas jam, you eat it all year around over here, either with bread and butter, or with bread and white cheese (quark)…..veeeeery yummy!! The cake recipe itself originally comes, I believe, from Austria.
Apart from the munchies I had all weekend long I finished the custom order of 450g of handspun and handpainted Bluefaced Leicester yarn in teal, aquamarine and cornflower blue last night. The yarns have now gone to their new home here in Germany. I am very pleased with the colourways and the yarn quality:
And the custom order of 18 handpainted silk scarves is also properly dried and was packed this afternoon:
I believe that they will make wonderful gifts. :o)
