Binding and blooms.............

I worked on the hand sewing part of the binding for 3 hours last night and got 2 1/2 sides done.  I'm going to consider this one a November finish since it is so close.  I'll do my November recap tomorrow.

 Here are three of the current blooming cacti, the orange, pale pink and white.
There were others in bloom but not at the best photographic stage.







I stopped at Goodwill on the way home from church and scored big on pots.  I had a 25% off  coupon to use in my birthday month and since it was the last day of the month, it was my last chance.

Great 'pot' score!!! The flowers are looking good... and a finish is always a good thing.

Those ARE nice pots. I wonder if this is a good time of year generally or you were just lucky. Happy belated birthday!

good looking quilt and pots. I need to make a Goodwill run one day but to drop things off not to pick up more - I just have too much excess of "things" around here

You really do have the touch with Christmas cacti. I'm glad you were able to luck into some really good flower pots for a belated birthday treat.

Happy Belated birthday Wanda! Your cacti are gorgeous and I'm happy they give you so many gifts, in the way of flowers.

The quilt looks wonderful! I do love the binding you choose. And the backing you used - spectacular! Please post the back as well as the front. I just bought another Norfolk Island pine. They have them every year at a local grocery store and they are inexpensive. My one last year didn't do well, but the one I bought two years ago is thriving and growing. I want to have a whole forest of these!

First of all: your quilt is going to be fantastic. Second: your pots are great and Third: that pale pink flower is calling my name. We do not get a discount for our birthday here at most of the Goodwill stores. The man in charge of all St.Louis stores is making one million dollars a year !

I have loved this quilt from the very beginning and am excited to see it finished. I think it's so funny how the end of the month motivates you to suddenly get very busy finishing up something which you've had ready to finish for a LOMG time. But whatever works for you!

I never find such things at my goodwill! Congrats! The cacti are beautiful! My mother's was blooming when I went home for Thanksgiving!

Happy belated birthday, Wanda. Those pots are wonderful. I'm sure you will have them all full in no time at all. The cacti are gorgeous.
