Great job!  Your cross stitching looks so even and nice.  And I love the sentiment.  They really do throw up on everything!!

The towels are gorgeous.  What a fun gift!

Where did you get the linen?  I've looked for toweling linen off and on for a while, but I can't ever find anything of the same quality of my vintage tee towels.

oh my gosh, an aquarium heater!  I never thought of that.  I'll have to check if there is an outdoor outlet nearby, but it's a very interesting solution.  I live in Baltimore, so it's not TOO cold here, so I may just try and risk it and maybe bring a small bucket of the worms inside for December/January/February.

Some other things that might help would be to find a dark colored sheet to use as a lid, and maybe spray paint those buckets underneath black.  Anything to help it retain the sun's warmth would help!

Straw bales would be good.  If can't swing that though, you might try to rig up a "fish" heater for the worms.  The basic idea is that you sink a container of water into the middle of the bin, then put a very low-power aquarium heater in it to warm the water.  You can also use those hot lights that people use for baby chicks, but since worms don't like lights, I think that's not the best solution (also, I suspect the risk of fire is greater with lights).  The worms will gravitate to whatever part of the bin is a comfortable temperature for them.

They probably won't be that active, but you'll be able to keep them alive through the winter.

Yes, I use the krylon brand, in the small size.  It's tricky to use because it's very hard to direct the spray.  I ruined the piece I'm working on for Racky with it.  I've found the best way to use it is to mask areas where I don't want it to cover with a torn piece of paper (torn to avoid a straight edge).  But unfortunately, I sometimes forget to do that.

The together was the inspiration for the piece - those little ones will always be tied together.  I'm glad you like it a-roze.

That, and I totally ripped off the book cover thing from Phizzy.

The texture on the photo comes from gesso, sandpaper, and spray web.  I love spray web.

Good luck with your garden @nat_attack!!!!  Gardening is very gratifying.

Here's the purple bell pepper:


It's very dark green on the inside, and tastes like a regular bell pepper.  It was very crisp.

I'm sorry I haven't kept up with this swap.  Here's the amazing piece Phizzy made for me:



I love all the little details, but most especially the compass, because of course my adventurous ancestor would have had a compass!  Thank you Phizzy!

I'm on my way to the post office to mail amarylisroze's ancestor, and I've started on Babbetto's and Rackycoo's.  I'll confirm with Racky & A-roze after I've sent.

I highly suggest getting a chicken to make your tiny farm complete. They'll help eat bugs, are easier to maintain than a cat or dog, and seriously...they're awesome. Plus, you get free, organic eggs!

I grew up with chickens, and I agree with you that they are awesome.  I think my current yard is simply too small for a chicken - it's about 200 square feet total, and 100 square feet is patio.  I don't think chickens are happy on their own, so I'd need at least 2.   They'd need a pen of some sort, which would reduce my garden space. 

I've thought about it, and it's sadly not workable for me right now.

But in my next yard!  I'll definitely have chickens.

ah tiny farmer! You've inspired me!

Woo Hoo!  Let us know if you do set up a garden.  I'd love to see it!
