Sharing with Five on Friday

After some time, I'm again joining Amy at Love Made My Home for Five on Friday.

Number one:  Daiya cheezecake.
Oh my!
I found this at the grocery story several weeks ago and let me just say, I'm hooked.  
It's so delicious!

Number two:  Plumeria
Last week, the small tree on my balcony bloomed for the very first time.  
I've passed them while on walks, but never knew they had a fragrance.  
Such a light, sweet scent which apparently is even more fragrant at night.

Number three:  The moon
Tomorrow is the arrival of this month's full moon.
When I took this photo of my plumeria the other evening with the moon in the background, I didn't know that this month's full moon is referred to as the Full Flower Moon.
A very fitting image.

Numbers Three and Four: Two Crochet Finishes
My first triangle scarf made with yarn I've had in my stash for a while.
And the second one just finished today with yarn I bought a couple of months ago.
This one has a fringe that will have me leaving a trail of glitter wherever I go.

And finally, Number Five:
I'm looking forward to attending a workshop tomorrow being given by Lesli Robertson, an atist and Professor of Fibers, who is here as a Fulbright Specialist in a collaborative effort with Sadu House to promote the art of weaving.

Thanks Amy for hosting Five on Friday.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.

I haven't seen Daiya products anywhere in the UK yet, just a matter of time I am sure. Love the sound of the cheesecakes and your crochet scrarves are utterly gorgeous.

Nice post, love the smell of plumeria. This month's full moon is called the flower moon here.

I enjoyed your five. Your newly finished scarves are lovely--I like the colors and the shape. Stunning picture of your flower with the moon! A keeper for sure.

Ooh cheesecake, yum! Lovely crochet scarves, i have never made one, they look nice and cosy. The flowers are so pretty! Enjoy your weekend :)

Beautiful photos of the plumeria especially the one with the moon. It's good that you found a cheesecake that you can enjoy. The scarves are lovely and an attractive shape. Enjoy your workshop.

Hi Tammy, What a nice five today. I remember the first time I smelled the beautiful fragrance of Plumeria in Hawaii. So lovely. Your scarves are both so pretty! Well done! Have a wonderful weekend.

Mereknits said...

I love your shawls! Just beautiful both of them. Enjoy your workshop, you know I am a fan of weaving I'd love to be there too.
Hugs,
Meredith

I haven't seen Daiya here, but it sure looks good. Your plumeria is beautiful! I can almost smell it from here. Have fun at your workshop. Can't wait to hear about it.

Createology said...

My Grandma and now my Granddaughter grow Plumerias and they are so fragrant and beautiful. Love the Full Flower Moon and your most appropriate photo. Lovely triangle scarves. Enjoy your workshop which sounds amazing. Embracing Creative Bliss times five.

Bet you will love the work shop. Many years ago I used to weave all the time, I feel the urge beginning again.

Lorrie said...

Plumeria is such a fragrant and pretty flower. It looks great against the moon. Your crochet finishes are really lovely! Enjoy the weaving seminar.

Diane said...

What a nice surprise for your plumeria to bloom. And the triangle scarves are really pretty. Diane

Gracie Saylor said...

We have that brand of cheese here, and I like it. I hope to try their cheesecake, too :) I love the story of your Flower Moon photo! Your triangular scarves are pretty! I hope you have a grand time at the fiber event and that you will tell us all about it, Tammy :) xx

doodles n daydreams said...

Your crocheted scarves are lovely as are the flowers.

Teresa Kasner said...

Ohhh.. jealous of your flowering plumeria. I lived in Hawaii right out of high school.. 3 months the first time and went back for 4 months. I adore the smell of it. I might need to find one for my house! Enjoy your weekend.. oh.. and love your scarves! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Dee said...

The triangle shawls are very pretty! Congrats on the finishes!!!

Isn't plumeria pretty. It grows on Merritt Island and always amazes me how TALL they can get.

Mini said...

Lovely crochet finishes. Enjoy the workshop. Will talk about it when we meet next time.

Sangeetha said...

Hi Tammy, Your photos are always wonderful. I love plumerias, they smell heavenly. Lovely scarves, I like the blue colour - looks vibrant. What is a vegan cheesecake made of? While most Indians are vegetarian, vegan is yet to catch on. Indians love their milk and yogurt too much, what with the mithais, kheer, and lassi ;)
Hope you have a wonderful time at the workshop. Looking forward to a post about it.
Have a lovely weekend.

Rosie said...

Five lovely things. The cheesecake looks delicious and your crochet scarves are wonderful:)

Crimson Kettle said...

I like the fringe on your crochet and that plumeira flower is just gorgeous.

Sam I Am...... said...

The plumeria is gorgeous and they do have a wonderful smell from what I've been told. Your scarves are lovely and the workshop looks like fun. I wish I could find that cheesecake here as I am supposed to "steer clear" of dairy. It looks delish! Enjoy your weekend!

Tanya said...

Ahhhh - I remember the beautiful Plumeria from HI - lucky you, with your very own. Thanks for the tip on the cheesecake - and the fringed scarves are killer! Looking forward to hearing about your class - Happy Saturday, Tammy.

Betsy said...

Such a happy post Tammy! I absolutely love your photo of the plumeria and the moon. How fitting. :-). Your shawls are so pretty. People will think you're a fairy, scattering glitter everywhere. A weaving class. How fun! I've tried to use the little loom that Fifi brought me without a lot of success yet. And it's really just a toy. Have a wonderful weekend my friend.
Blessings,
Betsy

AnnieOBTextiles said...

The plumeria is beautiful and looks amazing with the moon. Like Betsy I immediately thought fairy dust when I read about the glitter. I hope you had a great day at the workshop.

Oh how I love that show of the moon...

Kit said...

Your scarves are lovely! I love their colors. Everyone should sprinkle a little glitter where ever they go. :) Kit

Sharon Koole said...

Lovely shawls - such gorgeous work. I hope you have fun at your workshop and learn lots!

Fun post with so much to enjoy.
I saw that same brand of cheesecake in our health food freezer section the other day but couldn't decide on one of the three varieties.
It has been so rainy here in northern Virginia we haven't seen the full moon...but I can still "feel" it. Everything is so lush and green and blooming like crazy.
A very fitting name for May's moon indeed.
Happy rest of the weekend Tammy oxo

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Tammy,
What a lovely post with especially that fragrant plumeria blossom. I miss it so much from our time of living in Indonesia!
Your dessert find is looking yummy indeed. Wonder what the ingredients are...
And you don't cease to surprise me with your steady advancement of crocheting. Love those two triangles.
Sending you hugs and blessings,
Mariette

Chel at Sweetbriar Dreams said...

A lovely five. How wonderful to take that shot with the flower and the moon on such an apt evening. Your crochet finishes are brilliant, well done on completing them (I'd best get on with my latest project!!). Have a lovely Sunday xx

Peggy Jones said...

Nice finishes Tammy. I posted the afghan I made for my gdaughter's graduation. On to a quilt piece for a blogger quilt for someone with cancer. Love that pink yarn in your previous post. Some great photo shots too.

SusanLotus said...

This is a lovely post! Beautiful photos. The Plumeria is lovely.
I had no idea this full moon is "The moon of flower". Maybe It´s time
to plant my balcony flowers now then?

I went to a class in Figure weaving in Stockholm in summer of 1993.
I think my Weaving frame stll is somewhere in my cellar...

Have a great time and happy creating!
Sussie

Lisa from @intotheglade said...

The flower and moon picture is lovely. I don't think we have that brand of cheesecake in the UK, I wish we did though it looks delicious. I like your crochet finishes, very swish. I hope you have enjoyed your workshop and are having a great weekend xx

Angela Moore said...

Oh my the Plumeria is such a beautifully simple, clean and delicate looking flower - I like that it is not too fussy looking, a classic looking flower.

Enjoy your weaving!

Nice 5 things! :)
Funny, my calendar (Susan Branch) calls this the "Corn Planting Moon" which for here in Illinois is perfect timing (though most of the corn is already planted and growing). The sweet corn in my garden however, is finally sprouting after weeks in the ground (we had too much rain for most of May and too cool of temps and sweet corn and beans need WARMTH). Finally, we are near the upper 80s - my kind of hot weather, I love it.
