Sunday was one of those glorious May days we get here in Brisbane. While we mooched in our flannelette jamies, a bit of nanna-esque crochet happened after these tasty morsels appeared on the Royal Sisters. It's one of her free by PDFs and if you have a tea party loving toddler on board and enjoy a bit of hooking magic, these are a winner! (Bungalowgirl, these belong on your teaset!) They are simple little crochet discs sewn together to make macaroony, whoopee pie-ish cookie things. There are five discs in each cookie.
I may need some pistachio coloured wool for the next batch, being a bit partial to the ol' pistachio macaroonski.
You can serve them up with air tea,
fake eat them (try not to overact),
stack them with a friend
or, as discovered by my lovely assistant, stick pins in them
and make very jolly little pincushions (a.k.a. birthday cakes).
The pins were a small indulgence from Typo on the last post- doctor therapeutic visit to DFO.
The cloth was also run up Sunday morning between cookies. I found the fabric at Spotlight Saturday. Sunny isn't it!?
Meanwhile other crochet projects have been multi- tasked as well. Rainbow igloo, anybody?
