afternoon tea

 
Mmm... French apple cake for tea today. I couldn't resist adding a dash of cardamom and a dash of nutmeg to the cinnamon-sugar topping when I was baking.
-------------------------------------------
Toggle buttons have been procured for my Shalder cardigan. The pickings were awfully slim at my fabric store, and shopping for buttons online is a soul-crushing endeavor. These are La Mode style no. 29442 (hook 608).

Here's a vague idea how they'll look sewn on:
My cardigans are almost always worn open, so the buttons probably won't see much actual use.

My owl baby vest pattern is now available en espaƱol, by the way! Muchas gracias to Cecilia, aka wenlita, for the translation.

That cake sounds delicious! Looks like a lovely tea-time.
Beautiful cardi! Shalder is on my list as well...

I like your color choice better than the pattern picture!

Your cardigan is gorgeous! Buttons are also pretty much decorative for me.

I'm with you on the buttons. I rarely bother any more.

Yay for finished cardigans! It looks great -- and the buttons are cute. Also: I LOVE apple cake. This is one I will have to try!

I always wondered about my grandmother leaving open her cardigans, but now that I've gotten older, I've only been using the top one...to keep the chill off the shoulders...
