Same old.......



As usual I was hopping from one project to another.  I cut some more pieces for the log cabins and sewed one more round on each block.  They will have 2 more rounds when they are finished.  The die says 12" blocks but that doesn't end up with even darks and lights so I think they are going to be 11" blocks with 2 extra strips left over.  I added more strips to the quarter log cabin blocks while I watched TV last night too.
The medium rose cacti is one of my smaller plants.  I didn't mark this one last year when it bloomed and I have 2 pots like this so I didn't know which one had the rose color blooms.  The other one has a bud so I'll know soon what color it is.  I marked all of the rest of the plants.




I was moving this pot around to get better photos a couple days ago and 3 buds fell off.  They really don't like to be moved once they are ready to bloom.  This is the white blooms with a hot pink center.




The red one is almost ready......this one didn't bloom until after Thanksgiving last year.

Wanda, Log cabin blocks with plaid fabrics look amazing. I have never had cactus plant in the house. I love seeing yours in bloom.

Finally, two of my cactus plants are in bloom- the orange an the pink. I am not a an of plaid, I don't know why, but your blocks look great.

That seems like poor planning on the part of the die maker. Log Cabins are so traditional that I am amazed they didn't get it right.

Your blocks are looking great.

Once again - your cacti amaze me. So many buds and blossoms on each plant! Beautiful! (And I've made a decision re my long-dreamed about log cabin)

do the cacti have really strong sunlight at this time of year? My house has really poor light as the south exposure has a full length covered porch that shades my windows. I keep thinking of getting a cacti like yours but think I don't have enough good sun exposure for it.

Love how you work on so many projects simultaneously! Would love to see pictures sometime of how you organize your projects - do you keep each on in a box or something? Happy sewing, enjoy the sunshine today!

Lovin' the plaids! I found a couple of canna rhizomes that look like they were trying to grow so I am going to throw them in a pot and see what happens. Yes, they would be considered an odd plant to grow indoors.

The plaids are really stunning!

I'm loving the plaid log cabin squares. Guess I need to start hunting/stashing plaids!
