Finally my secret stitching is done, and I can show off what I'm up to.
A video chat with Janice yesterday regarding a quilting set up very similar to my own got me in the mood for some quilting, on the frame.
Lucy Blue has been on the frame for weeks, waiting. And yesterday she finally got her turn.
Just a simple meander, nothing fancy.
The lovely curving, flowing almost serpentine line meanders in and out of the patches beautifully.
I did not get much done as it was quite late in the day when I started, but I'm hoping to get more done today, before DS Joe and his family arrive.
Preserving season is not yet over. This morning I turned the latest batch of ripe chilli in to Cowboy Candy.
Or Candied Chilli Peppers!
The lids on these reused jars tell lies! There are habanero and a Carolina Reaper chilli mixed in with the milder, but still hot Wild Fire chilli.
I know Tony will enjoy them and we have friends who are waiting for them too. But they will have to wait a while longer, like most pickles, they are better if left to sit for a while.
