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.  :))

Oh the inspiration here, Bev!!!  Sweets come in all flavors (my favorite is lemon) and colours (mine favorite is ... no, I won't tell ... hahaha)  Funny, tho, I'm not a huge blueberry fan.

I think black is a great CoM.  Solid black squares will be an elegant addition to a blanket!  And black can be dressed up with every other colour of stripes or polka-dots, half'n'halfed with any shade of blue, green, gold, red, mauve, yellow ... even pink :))

I'm imagining a full lineup of beauties from our oh-so-creative crafters this month ... xo

Cheers for the super header blurb,  it's full of ideas,  has my mouth watering a little and my imagination is having a riot!!

A Fantastic Intro Bev.   I think I'm hungry for some sweets now, I wonder why????   HA!

(Who am I kidding, I'm always hungry for sweets!)

Slice of Chocolate Swiss Roll anyone?

LOL ... Patricia, I love it!!!  So creative and a real 'treat' ... xo

One of my favourites Patricia :))

What a great interpretation Patricia.

Absolutely LOVE your Swiss roll, Patricia!! This is soooo cool !!

I originally had a Swiss Roll in my intro, but thought my list was looking so long that I deleted a few. So glad it gets a mention with this fun interpretation from you.  :))

Looks good enough to eat, Patricia! Love your colours.

A delicious Chocolate Swiss Roll, Patricia.   Looks good enough to eat, especially on the strawberry background.

Thank you Bev for sharing your sweet treat memories! I’m afraid that  I too enjoyed far too many sweet treats during lockdown, thankfully this theme is calorie free :))

In this blanket I was using up 2 different variagated yarns which reminded me of some favourite fruit sweets as child, and a plain colour that reminded me of all things raspberry (my son’s favourite).....

    

               

        
 

Chris, your blanket looks scrumptuous :))  I can see all the lovely sweets woven through it.  Beautiful ... xo
