Sweet weekend

This post could have also been called "large" weekend, in reference to my waist size.  There seemed to be a lot of sweet eating the past few days.  

Saturday morning was the weekly pilgrimage to The Market.   There were a lot of food vendors this week.  I couldn't leave without these 2 beauties - blueberry cream puff and strawberry cream tart.


I wish I could say that was all I bought but I must confess to consuming a few maple butter tarts also.  And this morning I had to try a recipe I saw on Facebook - monkey bread muffins.  Delicious!!


If I'm going to eat like this I should be exercising, right?   Well......does clapping, head bobbing, toe tapping and swaying count?  Last night I went to a show that was a tribute to The Everly Brothers.  Local musicians performed and it was incredible!   Their harmonies were perfect and the crowd was appreciative.


You'd think there was an earthquake because the floor was literally vibrating from all the toe tapping :). There is so much talent in our little community.  My friends decided we could be back-up singers in another life.  

I hooked some more on my sheep.  The sky is about 3/4 hooked and I'm out of wool :(.  I've saved a few strips so I can buy another matching piece tomorrow.  I hate it when that happens.  

Someone asked about the wool I used for the grass.  Here are the two wools


I'm not sure where I got the one on the left but I think the one on the rightis a Heavens to Betsy wool.  Maybe named turkey feathers (?)

I can't believe how fast the weekend passed.  Soon it will be Easter and a long weekend.  Just hang on!

  1. I didn't know you started with full pieces and had to do the cutting too...sorry, but we can't all be hookers ;) Now I need baked goods...stat! Toe tapping is the best kept calorie burning secret I think I heard.

  8. The Everly Brothers lived in my town when they were in high school and sang for a local radio station daily. I even went at times on Saturdays to watch the program live! No TV in those days around here. xo

    Thanks for sharing the wool. I know I have a couple pieces of turkey feathers and had no idea how to use it.

    Thanks for sharing the secret of your wool. The grass is awesome on your rug.
    As for the pastries, I had to look the other way. I gave up sweet for Lent, lol...
