The weather person tells me that winter is about half over, but it has been a very gloomy week. On the up side, it is light until nearly 5 PM now. I was looking for something to brighten my blog.
First up, my indoor plants have decided it is spring.
The amaryllis is blooming in the kitchen.
The azalea that lives in the sunroom all summer, is now blooming in the dining room. I have had this plant for about 15 years and I can't believe it still loves me enough to flower. You can see the snow behind it in the backyard.
A gerbera, that we found still alive in an outdoor planter after a significant frost, decided to brighten our lives, this week, too. It isn't even in a pot, just stuck in a convenient takeout tray.
Of course, there is this little day brightener.
Since she thought she should wake me up this morning, I thought I would wake her up to take her picture while the light is passable. She is making sure I wash those aprons before I use them again.
I am teaching a class on making a tote bag, and have been less then successful at getting my sample made and my supply list done. It must be done this week. I did make a block for the front of the tote.
I was auditioning these fabrics, and I am not sure any of them work. Odd that with those fabrics, the hot pink looks coral. I will pull more fabric. I am determined to buy nothing!
Meanwhile, I am still working on my Advent scarf, that I started in November.
