I want to make another zig zag quilt like the one in my header except this time I want to alternate rows of warm and cool for contrast. I don't think I am going to add any orange or yellow, but if I get bored with this selection I probably will have to try it. I will still pull at least another 10 of each temperature to add to the pile before I start cutting.
A third Christmas Cactus is in full bloom now. The flowers are 2 tone, bright deep pink and white. When I bought the plants they all had buds but some of them dried up and I never got to see what color they were. They don't like to be moved once they get buds and a lot of the time they will just fall off and not bloom. I noticed 2 more of my plants have buds too.
This is what an autumn shade garden looks like before a heavy frost. all of the hostas start turning yellow.
This shot is looking through my 2 bare Redbud trees to the maple which is just starting to turn color. Just beyond the maple on the left are 2 Junipers which planted themselves. This view is from the dining area window in my kitchen.
I ran errands yesterday morning and then sewed the 16 patch ends onto the quilt top but I didn't press it yet so no photos until tomorrow.
I'm helping at Quilter's Heart this morning for her 40% off going out of business sale.
