We have an abundant supply of colorful peppers in the garden too. Again, they are late in coming, but they are here. I slice and then spread them out onto a cookie sheet. Then I place them in the freezer until they are frozen. Freezing them that way before bagging them up allows you to take out just the ones you need for cooking. They, too, are wonderful all winter.
In between "putting up" I played with pieces.....
Halloween bags for some of the grandchildren. I have made them for the others already. One problem that I had with these was my package of rick rack. I was not pleased with quality assurance when I opened this package and had to patch it to make it work. I would have taken it back, but the trip to the fabric store has now become a long trek with the closing of our main road for TWO months!!!!
A few more blocks in the batiks that I have been playing with. The jury is still out on this one, but I will keep trying more to see if I can help it along. At this point I hate to have it end up a UFO.
I made a couple more take along chalk boards which have been a big hit and
.... a pacifier leash, in PINK of course!!!
Lastly, a couple of weeks ago I won some metallic threads from Tonya. Although I am not a fan of sewing with the metallics, I have found that putting them in the bobbin can give great and hassle free results. I have been making some flower pins with them and I really like the results. They are great for wearing or attaching to bags.
My last P is a new phone. Now I need to spend the next ten years learning to use it!!!!! For years I have just had a flip up thingy and I now have a phone that assures me that I will never get lost!!!!! Is that REALLY a good thing? Ahhh....technology. There is definitely a love/hate relationship here.
Happy fall y'all.
