Some Christmas sewing

. . . beautiful pink lillies this week
. . . and after about 10 years of nurturing this cactus, it has rewarded me with this lovely flower, and about 3 or 4 more buds coming

My little Peter has been doing some paper folding with the Better Homes and Gardens magazines.

. . . and some Christmas Cushions for my very good parent helpers this year
more sewing later tonight

Ooo Annie, that quilt is so tantalising. I hope you will show the whole thing.

Love your flowering cacti. We get that one here but it is hard to get it to flower. So beautiful.
