On the home stretch

It's getting better around here by the day. We palmed off two of the six plants we're looking after to a friend so now only the remaining four are in mortal peril. I just wish I could figure out which one smells wierd. I don't like plants and they don't like me. I have managed to clear my desk enough that I can now get to my sewing machine again!! Crafting is imminent!! I think its 'quick crafts for sanity' time. Bookmarks, coasters etc. Just to take the edge off!!

I finally photographed all that baby gear (no Eva, sadly theres no news to report) and it is listed for sale (it took 3 photos to fit it all in) and I am eagerly hoping it'll sell so I can pay bills (buy fabric), buy food (buy fabric), generally act responsibly (buy fabric) and buy fabric. Just kidding. I need threads, felt, ribbons, buttons and needles more than fabric. As you may be able to tell I am kind of hanging out to craft. Now I am not working or doing much else sewing and creating something has taken on new meaning. It's either that or doing the dishes. Hard decision.

One of the plants we're looking after (and possibly the smell culprit) is a chili plant!! I'm strangely fascinated by it.

Wow, that is quite an auction! And the price is fantastic (it's about $70US right now I think).

I do not have a green thumb either, so I don't know if that is the plant that is giving off the foul odor... but it does seem a likely candidate! Does the kitty avoid it also?

I am not only fascinated by your chili plant, but by the cucumbers and tomatoes in my father's garden.. Don't know why it's so amazing, you plant, it grows, you eat.. So simple.. :)
