A Couple of Updates . . . .

James River Blues is home from the quilter . . .


Connie Lancaster at Quilts Plus quilted this top for me. This quilt was originally headed to the family room, but my red couch was bare after I put up my Christmas quilts so it landed here instead. If you've ever wondered what color couch is the best color to showcase your different quilts, it's been my experience that red couches are the best!

I've just got to share this with somebody, and since no bodies are coming to my house you get the news . . .

Not only is my $4.99 Home Depot Poinsettia still alive, it looks better today than when I brought it home over 6 weeks ago! Leaves continue to open and bloom. I've never managed to keep a plant alive this long, let alone thriving! It's the only thing blooming in my neck of the woods, at this rate, I think it may make it to next Christmas or at least Valentines Day!

I'm also sewing, hopefully the weather will cooperate so I can get some good pictures of Starry Eyed, it's all done!

  10. Thelma I'm so envious that you can keep a poinsettia looking that good indoors. A tiny bit of fertilizer may keep your lovely going as well.
    Any chance of getting a close-up of the quilting on your project. It's a most handsome finish.

    Your quilt looks lovely, and since it's been a long time since I've popped out of my reader to catch your posts, I'm also loving the red/white borders on your blog. Looks terrific!
