Yay! A theme I can certainly relate to.........image.png
While many people were learning new skills during lockdown, I was discovering new sweet treats......not cooking them, just eating them. Some of which I will share this month, along with my other favourites.
 
Many of my most favourite memories of my mother's cooking involve 'sweet treats'.  Melting moments, coconut jam drops, lemon pudding, six inch tall, double sponges filled with cream and dusted on top with icing sugar and strawberry jelly cakes.  I remember the first marble cake; being so intrigued by the marbled chocolate, pink and vanilla  all in one cake....I thought my mother was a magician...how could she get all the colours to appear like that???..
     
 On the rare occasion when I went grocery shopping with my Mum and Grandma, I was allowed to buy one or two lollies. I usually chose two green  frogs (not the red ones...haha). I could get two for 8 cents, in those days
  

Today, there is such a wide variety of  sweet treats....and doesn't everything taste better, when covered in chocolate?...haha
Please join me this month in sharing some faves, both old and new.

Our colour of the month (CoM) is black. Some may say that this is rather boring or a non-colour, but I think black makes the pastels pop, the brights pop and the stripes positively sparkle.  :))

Fabulous blanket again Sandra - you have an amazing imagination, and the patience of a Saint with all the colour changes and ends to sew in.   Kudos!

Another really clever blanket, Sandra.

A wonderful ‘happy’ blanket :))

WOW!   Sandra, you've done it again.   This is bright, fun, cheerful blanket that will be cherised by a lucky child.

Sandra, this is fabulous. I can imagine a little one mimicking those smiles when wrapped in the warmth of this special blanket.  What a lovely gift ... xo

Hi Bev, Gloria

That is so funny.

I should pretend that I knew about Smiley Face Lollipops and that was why I knitted the blanket, but I didn't!  I'm not much into lollies, though sometimes enjoy a Tim Tam biscuit, but not that often these days.

Another gorgeous blanket, Sandra. I love it.

April 2021 Theme - Sweet Treats

During covid I have discovered that Allens now make packets of just Black Cats. I have eaten the odd one or two when they have been in a 'party mix' pack and wasn't overly impressed...now I love them!! Googling them today, I discovered they now make chocolate coated ones...will have to go looking in a grocery store...they sound yum!!

Bev, what a sweet square.  A little friend for a child to find :))  And your beautiful duplicate stitching is a treat for everyone to see!  xo

Haven't seen or heard of any cat sweets - the one on the packet front looks a bit cross - unlike yours on the square which gives an air of "what is it thinking?".    Purrrfect!

Gosh - all these new sweets.  I love aniseed but I'm not sure I'd want it coated in chocolate. Love the square, Bev.

My theory is..... anything that I like that is then coated in chocolate cannot be bad, Patricia....hahaha.
