A Day Home

All of my Christmas cacti are in bloom!  It is beautiful to see all the plants covered with different shades of red! 
I stood and quilted at the frame off and on all day!  It is so nice to be home ;  to putter, clean, work on a project and lay down when needed....... 
The tutti-frutti quilt is off the frame!

It was a great day!

  4. I am still in awe of your watercolors!!!

  5. I am still in awe of your watercolors!!!

  6. It is like a luxury to have a whole day to be creative and just putter. I love those rare days. So funny, I just pulled my watercolors out the other day. Love the oranges :)
