Back to sewing

Between all the sickness and finally having our Thanksgiving meal, I got back to the sewing room.  I've dreaded putting my applique blocks together for some reason, but once I got into the swing of things, I'm enjoying it.  Here's the first row:

The sashing is 1" (finished) squares.  All strip pieced.

....and since I'm on the subject of flowers:

My Christmas cactus bloomed for Thanksgiving.  It's never had this many blooms before.  Mom always had one and we would talk about it on the phone.  Hers always bloomed.
I gave my mom a basket of miniature rose bushes for Mother's Day in 2009.  It turned out to be her last Mother's Day on earth.  She transplanted them into pots and when she passed away, I took them and planted them in my flower bed 300 miles away. They're always SO beautiful but this year has been exceptional.  I guess they've liked our extreme Oklahoma  weather.  They're still blooming even though we've had several frosts.  They're a nice reminder of Mom and what a wonderful person she was!

I love your quilts they are very colorful and appealing. I am sorry about your momma... I lost my mother year before last, right before thanksgiving 2010. I inherited her sewing machines and her stash of material. So I guess I am a material girl.
