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.  :))

But is this one cro-knit, Gloria?

Yes, Lesley, this one is cro-knit.  I just used the same method of increasing as the regular crochet version ... sort of ... xo

I'm a bit behind the times here - I don't think I've ever seen coloured popcorn before and I've only recently discovered that I like Sweet & Salty. Very pretty square anyway!

I've never made coloured popcorn, but I think I recall buying it once or twice when the kids were little.

A Beautiful interpretation of candy corn, Gloria.   Now you're making me hungry again.

Lovely colours Glo, I’ve never seen coloured popcorn, but I will look out for some :))

April 2021 Theme - Sweet Treats

The Easter Bunny has been a little late arriving to my house. :))
These have not been sewn on to the squares as yet, because they have beaded eyes and mouth, which I need to remove and create embroidered ones, for safety. The creamy-coloured, velvety, bunnies have a little pink rosette headband on each ear, which is lost in the pic. :))

Love these bunnies, and they stand out so well against the black.  Hope they brought you some Easter eggs!

They're coming.......   :))

Did get a lousy scratchy throat/headcold for Easter, which has taken a turn for the worse today.  :(( 

Sorry to hear that, Bev - I recommend hot lemon and honey, along with the Easter eggs, of course :))  Hope you feel better soon.

Oh Bev, what cuties!  They will certainly be a treat in a child's blanket :))

I'm sorry you've come down with a bug.  Along with Lesley's advice of hot lemon and honey (i agree!!) and lots of Easter eggs, try to get plenty of rest.  Maybe your body is trying to tell you something ... xo

What sweet appliqués, Bev. Sending get well wishes.
