Fruit Tarts and Yarn Bon Bons
Was it my birthday and I forgot?? Did Christmas come early?? Nope, I didn't lose any teeth. Ms. Abi aka Miss Holly, Mrs. Bear, Ms. Gallagher, or Gail sent me the biggest surprise ever! I have no idea what I'm making yet, but ideas are flying. These are yarns I've read about but never splurged on. They feeeeel good. I always go for the low dollar and then am disappointed. But now I'm afraid to start something. Will it be worthy??? Egyptian cotton by On Line Linie in sherbet colors, Schulana's Sojabama in cream, Ornaghi Filati Le Fantasie, Austermann Step for some great socks, some Shepherd wool, some Louisa Harding Coquette with SPARKLES. What to do, what to do!
This is Loosie's recipe for fruit tarts, but I think I didn't do her justice. Sort of overcooked the crusts. Should have put some banana in there for color. But even still, they look good.
