Sunday Sewing With The Girls.......

Today was our monthly sewing get together.
When we arrived we were told that the power was off, and wouldn't be back on until 3pm.
But we sat there in the semi-dark ( the building does have skylights ) and talked more than sewed.
I did manage to baste all the above hexies.
It is something that doesn't require good light.
So I now have ready (  no's 48 to 51 )

 Look at these !
They are the neighbours cactus flowers.
Mine aren't this tall.
But as we have had some rain they have decided to bloom.
Ours have buds but haven't opened yet.

More beautiful rose buds.
Over the fence in the background are the neighbours cactus flowers.
You can just see them in the shade.

And our red one is blooming again.

DH pulled up the garlic tonight and dug some spuds that were growing under them.
They were from little potatoes that we missed last year that came up themselves.
I boiled them in their skins and we had them for tea.

The girls layed 12 eggs today.

Until Next Time.

Cactus does not bloom often or for long, but when it does bloom it's spectacular.

You got a lot of hexies made... light or no light!

The cactus flowers are just stunning... nothing like that around here...
