Warm SunshineWednesday, January 13, 2010
Finally!!! The snow is melting and the sun is shining. Spent time stitching and watching my son work on his thesis. Peaceful. My days are divided between quilting and stitching. My quilt blocks get the morning hours and my afternoons are saved for stitching.
We have several projects we are racing to finish up. Country Inn, our quilt book, is due soon. And we are trying to get everything ready for cross stitch market in Nashville. It's the end of Feb. this year...so we still have about 15 minutes before we load up the car and head south. (We really have longer ....but it feels like market will be here in 15 minutes.)
But no more stressful thoughts...I'm snapping the rubber band on my wrist...so in the spirit of beauty and peace, I'm showing you the following.
I never considered my geraniums as house plants until last year. Usually I leave them outside and just purchase new ones in the spring. But no more! This is the second year I have brought in my white geranium to overwinter in the house. It sits in my south bay window. The fresh white bloom and spring green leaves cheer me up. It's amazing how they bloom all winter long. Just clip the spent blooms and continue on their merry way.
Thank all of your for your thoughts and advice. Barb and I really appreciate you taking the time to let us know your ideas. We can use them all!
Hope it's warm and sunny where you are!
