On the other hand I have some items made of 'silver'.
Last week I introduced you to a green cake, Prinsesstårta.
At a coffee party in Sweden such a cake is passed around the guests and it is up to each and every one to cut their own piece. For that you need a 'tårtspade', or cake server in English. Many old ones are made from silver with beautiful engravings or patterns.
The saying goes that if your cake falls to one side you will not become married. Happily married people make their cakes flop over on purpose!
I have put the initials Q, P and S for Queenie Patch Stitches on the spoons.
In the two pictures above you can also see some of the handmade bobbin lace from my mother's collection. I have placed the lace on top of either blue or yellow fabric; the national colours of Sweden.
This week's border flowers look flat and uninteresting. They will be stung by needles, tied down with thread and burdened with beads. Poor flowers! Or will they like the body piercing?
