A treat from Shay

Some six or seven years ago when I first “met” Shay via a Yahoo CQ group, she gave me a recipe for “spiced Pecans“.

A couple of days back I was surprised and delighted to receive a parcel from her containing not only a sampling of her spiced pecans, which had a hint of cloves I think.!

also some “to die for” Christmas cookies , so sweet and short,that I’m amazed they survived international mail handling,and Australian Customs!

and a real treasure: a chicken- scratched apron which belonged to her grandmother (Caroline Taunta Cann) some years back.
The needle woven picots in the central design are superb,and I sincerely thank Shay for giving me such a great gift. Posted by Picasa
