Right on cue, the Christmas cactus began blooming on Dec. 1. You can see there are lots more buds on the plant so I should have blooms for several weeks. I was totally wiped out after grocery shopping, working about 2 hours, taking Dad to lunch and the optometrist office, and driving home. I didn't sew a stitch. I guess it really has been a whirlwind for the last week getting ready for Thanksgiving and then cleaning the basement and having the company all day Monday. Maybe this was my crash day.
Last night I looked at my new (10 yr. old) book. I was able to find this one on Half.com. I ordered several books from this seller because she had really reasonable prices and a couple books that I had been looking for. This book is more about Kaffe's inspirations and decorating of his home than about quilts. It does have a few of his early quilts in there with instructions though. It was new and available when I was working at the quilt shop that had every book currently in print and I didn't buy it. Kaffe's fabrics were new at that time and we carried lots of the stripes and checks but only 2 of his prints. Now it is interesting to see where his inspiration comes from since his fabrics have become popular.
Today I hope to have my energy back.
