This and That

Just had to get a picture of my brother after he had been screened. He had forgotten to take off his belt with a big buckle and also had some change in his pocket. They went over him good.. This was coming home in San Jose.

Then I came home to my Christmas Cactus in full bloom for the second time. I could tell it was starting to come out and had brought it back up to the kitchen before I left.

Just too pretty to leave down where you can't see it.
I took this quilt out to give to Marsha my sister's oldest girl that has spent the last 3 months faithfully taking care of her. The last few weeks she spent every day there and when needed had gotten other ladies to spend the night.

I made this quilt several years ago. The blocks were from a swap using some of my fabrics. The sawtooth borders are all hand appliqued on. and it's heavily quilted with feathers.

I had given the other two girls quilts and decided it was time to give one to Marsh. It's a small twin size but she has a queen size bed but had a white comforter on it and this would look good on top of it. She seemed pleased. So Enjoy Marsha.

Then when I got home in a couple days, Bonnie posted the next clue for the Orange Crush Mystery quilt. Needed to make a lot of Half Square Triangles out of just two fabrics. So got those done and put two blocks together and this is one of the first

Mine are very scrappy but isn't this a neat Friendship star block? I have 6 made and 24 more to go.
So I should get off the computer and start sewing.

"So I should get off the computer and start sewing." You and me both. These computers are addicting, but not very productive. I love your quilt and your block. I'm sure your niece will love it. It is nice to have a quilt to pull up when it is chilly, and they look so pretty across the bed.

Your Christmas Cactus is so pretty. My mom always had them around. The color is so vibrant. Marsh is very lucky to be getting that quilt, it's a beauty.

Your spinning star looks great! I just had a lovely time looking at your and your mom's quilt photos. You two made wonderful quilts. I especially like Joseph's Coat that your mom made.
