As if that wasnt enough, when I got home this was in the mail for me! This is from Julie of Equus Villa, who is passing along this book and the recipe and main ingredient for swedish pea soup as well as this beautiful tray and the serving spoons. Thank you Julie! What a great day! Ok, NOW I am taking a break... no really........

Thank you Phyllis! I know just what I am going to do with it! I have been wanting some great lace for a project I have in mind, can't wait to get it done now and show you! By the way, Phyllis has opened a new online shop with some beautiful items. You can check them out here.

The Folk festival was only so-so. Music was good but it was very hot out and the "craft show" part of it was minimal. The one thing that I found really interesting was an area in the Folk Craft demonstration tent that showed tatting. There were some lovely ladies there doing demonstrations and even sitting down with some of the children and showing them lace-making and tatting and letting them try it themselves. I had always wondered how it was done and now I have seen it. I gives you a real appreciation for the effort and hours spent decorating the vintage hankies and pillowcases that still decorate our homes!

Blueberry (or blackberry, or what about raspberry!) Cheese rolls
1 pkg. (8 oz.) refrig. crescent rolls
4 oz. Neufchatel cheese
2 Tbsp. Sugar
1/2 cup blueberries (or blackberries, or......)
Preheat oven to 375. Unroll dough into 4 rectangles; firmly press perforations together to seal. Combine cream cheese and sugar: (I added a small egg to make it more like cheesecake consistency) spread onto dough rectangles to within 1/2 inch of the edges. Top evenly with berries. Bring opposite corners together to seal. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 11-13 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle with a little powdered sugar. Makes 4 servings. These are super easy to make and really delicious. I would add more fruit next time too. Have a peaceful and fun Sunday!
