My friend stopped at our favorite little second hand store and found us another "cutter" quilt to share. Its a beautiful indigo blue and white in the Irish Chain pattern.
and hand quilted. We didn't cut up the blocks, just divided it in half lengthwise.
Last week was I gathered with my friends from my Herb Society at P.J.'s art studio to create fresh arrangements for our Holiday tables. There was a great variety of greens.
These are a few of the finished arrangements, Santa sitting on dried reindeer moss with greens in the back of his sleigh.
P.J.s beautiful arrangement with candy canes, photographed on one of her stools the students sit on to paint (love them).
The piece I made for myself using a clay flower pot I spray painted creamy white and hot glued on vintage buttons years ago. I put a plastic insert inside to hold the water then filled it with oasis and a variety of greens.
And my last winter arrangement is on my porch. I put this together every year the first of November with fresh greens, rose hips, and red dogwood branches from our walks in the woods. Also, fresh cut holly branches from our shrubs. This will stay nice until middle of March.
(I keep the soil in the pot left over from summer and add a big pot of water to the arrangement).
This was suppose to be the first picture on this weeks blog but some how ended up at the end, what a great piece.
