Jean Cockburn retired from her professional career as an academic librarian in 2008 to become a textile artist living on Denman Island, British Columbia. She draws, quilts, embroiders, knits and crochets, makes wearable art, weaves baskets, dyes fabric, and paints watercolours. Her work has been exhibited locally in juried and group shows on Denman Island, in Courtenay, Comox, and Duncan on Vancouver Island, in West Vancouver, and across Canada with the Surface Design Association.
I had planned to bake Hot Cross Buns for breakfast, but two things occurred: I made a sweet dough with too much salt so the dough is very slow to rise, and I rolled over at 7 AM and decided to sleep for another hour instead of taking the dough out of the fridge to rise. Hence photo above of what the buns looked like at 9 AM.
So we moved onto plan B, which was very satisfactory. It consisted of coffee, bacon, mango with vanilla yogurt and popovers instead of the buns. Below is a photo of the table looking all pretty and then the real life situation 1/2 hour later.
