Busy, busy..............

I made 4 Christmas gifts (can't show them) and more baking yesterday.  I also was busy getting packages ready to mail today.  Last night I chose the strips to sew the last 4 combinations to make 7 blocks for my 16 patch quilt.  I sewed the strip sets and cut the segments to make the blocks.
Another red Christmas cactus started blooming yesterday.  The blooms are red and white.  Not much of the white is showing here from this angle.



The champagne colored cactus has lots of blooms right now.  I have 28 cactus plants so there is something in bloom almost all winter.  I have 2 orange/peach and one of them has one bud.  They usually don't bloom until after the first of the year.

Flowers look great. None of mine are blooming. Most of them already did. I have a binding to get on a child's quilt and a backing to press and get on the long arm. I found a pattern for a mixer cover and will try to make one for my daughter by Christmas. Need to buy stamps today- hope the line isn't long!

You are making great progress on the quilt and baking. I am behind as usual. I don't have to bake much this year, but I need to get started! The cactus are so pretty!

28 plants--that's pretty impressive! But it does give you something in bloom almost all winter. What a great idea!

Your cacti look so nice. Mine are covered with buds, but none blooming yet. This chilly weather and shorter daylight should help them along.

What happy cactus you have - my mother in law gave me a pot with a rooted cutting of each of her colors, it was fabulous every year until it got left outside one sudden cold snap. I should try to re-create!

Not much going on in the creative spaces..... my cactus bloomed between Thanksgiving and Christmas.... I see a few more buds... so hopefully another good blooming.... after Christmas. Saw some again this year, but I didn't buy one. But I have another orchid getting ready to bloom!!! Possibly 2!
