chili days

when we visited with our daughter a few weeks ago, they did a big picking in their garden

their pepper plants did very well this year, and we came home with a bag full of various sorts

this is a string of jalapeno peppers -- all of them were a shiny dark green

the DH strung them together and we hung them up

it's been fun to watch them change color -- we're going to let them totally dry then grind them into powder for using in cooking

food for the tummy later, food for the eye now
I've started working on a new piece of jewelry

this one is all based around specific color, and right now I'm just working on creating parts

not sure exactly where this is going, but so far I'm pleased with how the pieces look

meantime, I'm nearing the end of the applique work on the landscape quilt I've been making -- I hope to be ready to start the quilting in the next couple of weeks

time to get to it

I didn't know they change color as they dried--cool.
