Very Weird

Today the battery was not dead.
I added the latest border to the top of Let It Snow (which I have named this quilt) and I really wanted a picture of this stage. So I put the battery back in the camera and gave it a try. Voila!

So here is where I am with the quilt:

I worked all last week during the evenings on the three bottom snowmen.

Now I just need to add a bit more - maybe a foot all around and it will be big enough for a good blankie to wrap up in to watch TV. I like them big enough to really snuggle into so no part of my body is exposed to the cold winter indoor temperatures when I lie down to watch TV. I have no idea yet what that last border pattern will end up as. I can see I really need the blue/white stripe on the bottom. I hope I have some of that left!

My poor Persian Shield plant. It and the four hibiscus trees live in a litte room in the basement during the winter. The basement is warm enough and there is a large window in this room so they get just enough light to survive. Barely survive.
Look at this poor thing. I forgot to water it last week.

I think there is still hope.
The same thing happened last year and look how it came back. It's amazing how tough these plants are.


  1. Every autumn I lug my deck plants into the downstairs, unheated mechanical room and I wonder if all that effort is really worth it as the plants look pretty bad by the next May. However, once they are cut back, fertilized and set outside in the sunshine, they amazingly spring back to life. If I had to purchase all those plants, it would cost a fortune every year.

  2. Your snowmen look so cute!! I love it. You did a great job! I can't wait to see it finished!!

  3. I love your snowman quilt! It's been fun and very interesting to watch the process you go thru. Can't wait to see the finished project!

  4. Loved seeing how this quilt just keeps getting cuter all the time!
    How strange about the battery on your camera...
    Our 2 hibiscus look quite the worse for wear. (no basements here)!

  5. I just love the way you're letting us see each addition to your quilt...can't wait to see it when it's completely finished:-) Your plant will survive I'm's surprising how hardy the little buggers can be! lol
