As I always forget to post a picture of my orts jar on the New Moon (or should that be on the Full Moon), I have decided to post a monthly picture at the end of each month and, yes, I know I'm late but it is only the third! So what have we got inside for March - some teal blue from Sew Peacock, some rust red from Sew Quaker and some deep red from my miniature stitching. And what, you may ask, is the jar standing on? Why of course it's a sneak glimpse of the Sew Summer chart!
This stunning Christmas cactus belongs to Angela (no blog) - just look at all those flowers in full bloom!
And now ...
... my Christmas cactus! Ok stop laughing. It's not that funny, in fact it's quite sad :´( I have been tending this cactus for a couple of years now and it's never had more than 3 flowers at one time. Angela has now sent me some tips which I will follow religiously so come Christmas 2010 my cactus will be as lovely as hers!
I have a couple of projects that I've been working on for the past couple of days, that tiny little red sampler on which I am hem-stitching the borders around the four sections, and I've also made a start on Sew Summer. Pictures to follow in a day or so.
Today is my daughter Nicola's birthday. Happy Birthday Nicola - I love you lots!
