the decision was made
THANK YOU EACH & EVERY ONE!! I so enjoyed the comments about which fabric to use on my little freebie finish. I had pretty much decided which one I would use, but I thought I would open it for discussion. I appreciated your views on why or why not you would use which you chose.
I love both of the fabrics, for different reasons, but I went with the leaf patterned one for this finish, because the colors just seemed right for it.
I also have finished the Sept. block of Sylvia's SAL. Each month, I think 'oh this one is my favorite' & then the next month, she comes out with an even cuter one! I really loved the little scarecrow this month.
I am now back to working on my B. Potter piece. I have a goal in my head, so I am going to see if I can meet my goal. Originally, I had said the end of the year. That meant doing 2 motifs per month, with 2 extra motifs. Well, I think we all know how busy the end of the year can get! So....I decided maybe I need to move my deadline up a little!
I am also attaching a few pictures of our 'ghost chili' plants. I have grown these from little seeds that I won on E-bay. As you can see, we never put them in the ground. We have them in ice cream buckets. We didn't want to risk the local critters feasting on our plants. So, each night, I bring the buckets in the house & then put them back out in the morning.
If you don't know about ghost chilis, I suggest you do a google search about them! They are supposedly the HOTTEST pepper in the world!! NO, I WILL NOT BE EATING ANY!!!! I am a wimp when it comes to peppers!!!! My salsa recipe calls for 15-20 jalapeno's. I use 10 & that is too hot for me!!!
Have a wonderful holiday weekend everyone! I hope you get some stitching time, along with other activities you enjoy!
