Beautiful fall day. Clear and sunny. Harvest is finished. There is a lot to be done before winter. In between I worked on applique. I must be very slow, it took me three days to make this block--
A Honey Bee block. It's going on my "Jay's Sample Blocks" pile.
Right before the first hard frost, we brought my holiday cactus in. It spent the summer on the patio table on the deck. The shortening days must have triggered it to bloom. Now the buds are opening and it's a mound of blossoms. There are three separate colors in the pot, a fuchsia/white, a yellow, and a deep red/white. I was going to divide it, but it seems to be doing quite well as is!
Its setting on top of a treadle sewing machine, so you can see how big it is. I've been reading blogs in between bouts of other activity. I'm not sure what to do with all my leftover Halloween candy. I've been good and only had one tiny Snickers. Ken must be working on them, I'm finding empty wrappers.
