Not much accomplished......

I took my van over to the car dealer's for an oil change and tire rotation yesterday. They have an express lane now so it only took a half hour. Then I did a little shopping and after that some laundry. Not a very exciting day. I got the borders cut for my random plank quilt (to make it large enough for a twin bed) but didn't sew them on yet. I made a few more African fabric crooked cobblestones but need to make a lot more before I will have enough for a wallhanging.
All four blooms are open on this Amaryllis but the other one hasn't bloomed yet.  We're in another warm spell, 50 for today and tomorrow.  Chicago is getting ready to set a record of the longest number of days between measurable snowfalls.  We have already set the record of the latest first snowfall which hasn't happened yet.  I think everyone is wishing for snow for Christmas though.
 
I put a couple of my small Crooked Cobblestone wallhangings on my Wandaful blog.  I am offering free shipping on everything on that blog for the month of December.

Sounds like you got a lot accomplished. Things that needed to get done.

Amaryllis is beautiful... Calendar wise it is still Autumn. (*._,*) Enjoy your warm days.

The amaryllis is gorgeous -- love that colour!
We've not had any snow yet to speak of and it has been mild. I'm hoping for another mild winter like last year.

The amaryllis is beautiful. What is not to love about pink.

Your Amaryllis is such a delicate shade of pink! We had a little rain today after 6 months of none. We need more!

Lovely Amaryllis Wanda- I've got buckets of snow if you are missing it-LOL We have had snow now for about 6 weeks and it has snowed for many days in November and December. We have had more snow this fall than we had over the whole season last year... ah the joys of winter in Alberta.
Happy Creating,
Anna
