Binding started.........more cacti.....

I started the binding last night on the streak of lightning zig zag.  I'm finishing it by hand on the back and I'm a little over half done with it.  I sold 2 more quilt tops on my Wandaful blog so I got them ready to mail.  I had a couple other packages to get ready to mail too so it was a taping and labeling day.
The cacti are so pretty.  I have 3 in bloom that are pink and white.  The second one in the red pot is a white one.  It should be opening today.
One of the plants I split was actually 3 plants in one pot.  This is 1/3 of it. The one in the yellow pot in the photo above is another third.  I think they look so much better not crammed in a pot without room to spread out.

Your cacti are gorgeous and look so healthy. Do you use a special potting mix? I have never had good luck with them and have tried many times.

Your cacti are beautiful. Mine are still dormant. The streak of lightning quilt looks fantastic. Glad you were able to sell a few of your tops.

Beautiful quilt - beautiful cacti flowers (my mother grew them - mine didn't do so well).

I like the zig zag so much more now that it is off the wall and quilted - so much more personality!

love the cacti - I have never had much luck with them - I tend to over water I believe.

The Streak of Lightning is looking great. I love the binding.

Congrats on the sales, I know how great it feels to sell some, so you don't mind making more. Ha ha.

Your cacti flowers are lovely, I like the way they have room to spread " their wings" so to speak.The binding is super, and suits the lightning so well. Fond greetings, Jean

The streak of lightning quilt is amazing and the binding is perfect for it. Wow is all I can say.

I am amazed how each year these cacti just bloom like crazy. I have to get mine going as they are dormant too.

Glad to hear you got some good news out of the report on your health issue. Keep strong and hopefully the specialists will have good news too or an easy solution for you.
