I only have one more block to embroider for the ABC quilt that is a store sample. I put the blocks up on a design wall so I can see which colors to use for the remaining patchwork.
I dedicated one cutting table to just this project. It is an old wooden drafting table that I have had in the basement for over 20years. Here are the rest of the fabrics waiting to be cut.
The amaryllis isn't quite open but maybe tomorrow. Someone mentioned that they can be planted outside. Yes, they can, but I just leave them in their pots and put them on the north side of the house for the summer. I bring them in just before the first frost and put the pots in a closed cardboard box in my garage which is about 50 degrees. You need to give them at least 8 weeks rest in the dark according to one set of directions. The key to getting them to bloom again the next year is to fertilize them after they have bloomed and in the summer. I always forget to do that so I'm lucky if I get 2 or 3 of them to rebloom. I know a lady that plants hers outside and fertilizes them faithfully and she says lots of them rebloom the next winter.
