Hey, Little Tomato, ketchup! Actually, catch up. I was going through some pictures and realized that I never posted pictures of a quilt I finished last month.
I made this quilt for a special little guy named Dru. I was sending a quilt for his new little brother, Marley, and I didn't want him to be left out.
Also, the quilt that I originally started for Dru before he was born two years ago crawled under a rock in my basement (aka "craftland" or my "studio", you pick) and died. Seriously. I lost it. A whole quilt waiting for binding. But that is okay, I like this one better (with the exception of the center strip that taunts me with its imperfections even now). I'll put further information in the gallery, should you be so inclined to know it.
The perfect quilt for a lil' cowpoke (which just seems so much funnier to say--and type-- than cowboy). Little Sir helped pick out the Robert Kauffman prints, which were floating around in a local Jo-Ann's for whatever reason. I like the bright vibrant colors of this quilt. They are fun.
You know what else is fun? Caramel (I know, terrible segue).
Today/tonight (details), I made you a Carmelized Nut Tart. This is a great tart/pie. You probably have everything you need for this tasty treat in your cabinets. You can sub in any sort of combination of nuts and it tastes amazing (probably because of the caramel). I also made the crust called for in the recipe which provides the most unexpected and tantalizing dose of cinnamon to which compliments the earthiness of the nuts and the sweetness of the caramel perfectly. Sublime. And easy; actually, quite easy.
