Barbara Brackmans Threads of Memory 2014 BOM

Here is my flimsy quilt. cornerstones are presidents & I mitered the border. 60* angles, applique & y seams. Lots of re-sizing the templates. Lots of fussy cuts too, which is so fun...She asked me to send her a pic of it!

My Houseplants

I've been busy propagating my water, moist soil, cane cuttings, etc....My Spider plants won't stop making babies....I've a new mini Green house I picked up on Amazon for $26.
Put in a couple grow lights & a cheap fan...And I put the cover of a big tote bin down underneath it just in case....

Also my Mr. put a shelf up in my kitchen window for me where I propagate in water mostly...
The Red vase has pink Zinnias that reseeded themselves from last year..and I cut a bunch of Dill & Lavender to dry..hanging from the basement door.

From seed I planted Spinach, Oregano, Thyme & Sage. The Thyme & Spinach are already coming up....Want to plant them in a strawberry pot but they are as rare as Hen's teeth..So I'll think of something else.

Holiday cactus blooms are Coral...South window
Spider I just brought in from outside. I hung it on the Sycamore in shade all summer...South window.

Spathiphyllum my Mr. bought me...South room under the Hope Philodendron.

Neon Pothos from my Mr.  ...East window.

Succulent dish of which I do not know their names...South room away from the window.

1 of 3 Amaryllis coming up.

The 2nd Amaryllis & a cactus dish..This dish I put out every summer. well, it got the point of being soo crammed with cacti I had to have my Mr. wrestle it apart. Saved a few of them but threw most of them away...South window.
This geranium piece fell off of my main Geranium outside. I was pruning it & I guess I knocked it off...South room.
Draceana 'Janet Craig' Last year I had to cut the upper half off because it was too top heavy...the top half rooted & is planted to this ones left...North window.

This is the top to the other one. Same window.
This holiday cactus is actually 2 varieties I planted together, and a baby spider from the Mother plant...West window.

This is a baby of The one I just brought in from outside. In fact all the Spiders you see are from that Mother plant...north window.
I planted up my 'Hindu Rope' Hoya that my Mr. surprised me with...I crocheted the hanger too...East window.

Another dish of Succulents that my Angel is watching over to make sure they don't die...South window.
Pink Anthurium, it's a tropical...In the greenhouse.

This is before lights & fan.

It's bigger than I thought it would be...the bottom shelf is still empty.

Holiday cactus blooms are Rose color...South window.
