I did have the orchids to spend some time with and this one was the first to bloom.
I have never been good at sitting around and if I could not work on some applique, maybe there was something else I could do. The word rag quilt came up and that's all I needed. Next time pictures of our first sewing day.
Over the next few days I'm planning to add a few more workshops to my list and also add some more quilts to my web site. And I will update my itinerary for the coming months. And I will try and be blogging more regular, as I have something to share.
I love amaryllis and try and save my bulbs from year to year. Sometimes I'm success full, other years not. This one has 6 flowers on one stem and 4 on the other.
It is worth the time it takes to get them from year to year. Last year I kept some of the small bulblets and they are doing well, but will not be blooming for a few years. It is not exactly a fast project.
The orchid is one of my oldest and is a pretty yellow.
