The Fruits of my Labor

Two different kinds of fruit, two different labors, and two distinctly different results.
First there's this kind:


Luscious, little key limes. They were totally an impulse purchase. I was completely drawn in by their appearance, especially so because I've never bought or cooked with key limes before. Naturally this necessitated my finding a recipe because along with being impulsive, I'm inherently cheap and I wasn't going to let these guys go to waste. I knew that I didn't want to make key lime pie. I realize it's the obvious answer, but I've never really liked key lime pie. I thought I'd like to make some cookies. And a few keystrokes later I had all the info I needed to make these:


Key lime cookies with homemade key lime curd. Go ahead. The appropriate response is yummmm. I used recipes I found here and here . The curd recipe is for lemon curd, but I figured substituting limes wouldn't be a big deal.
The second fruit, a pepper, went into another kind of recipe.


I used it to stamp these fabrics and after I was done dipping it in wax it didn't exactly look delicious.


But, like the key limes, it helped to contribute to a finished product that I hope will be enjoyed.

Congratulations on the additional Quilting Arts Magazine exposure! Love the understated palette and your use of it.

I love your work. I am so enthrilled to read about it and to see your projects and your fabric from cookies to pillows, .... but I would mind just moving in your studio and being right there. You are doing great work.

Don't worry - I am staying right where I am and just keep following your blog.

Another beautiful entry. Just received my Quilting Arts issue and loved your article. I am usually all for the bright and contemporary but now see how lovely the subtle can mixing both contemporary and traditional. Thank you for all your inspiration

Hi Jennifer- I'd send some cookies but they're all gone. I myself woke up just a little earlier this morning to have one of the last ones.
