I ran a competition for one winner to receive a rolag set, with the offer to spin them if requested. The theme of the competition was food and drink. The entrants suggested their favourite teats as inspiration for their rolag sets. The lucky winner chose the theme of a traditional cream tea for her rolags, and asked me to spin them. I had such fun with this project.
Long, lazy days in the precious summer break. Time to indulge: A famous cream tea.
Freshly baked scones, still soft and warm from the oven.
Made by hand as a labour of love, by hands that have worked the dough for a lifetime.
The same hands that took the time to pick, clean and boil the fruit into jam. To heat the cream, slowly and steadily until it gives up its richest, golden crust.
Exotic tea: not of this continent, but still picked by hands. Knowledgeable hands, searching out the tender leaves. Plucking, drying, roasting, packing.
To be brought back to life with freshly boiled Devon water.
