GIVEAWAY & AFRICAN VIOLETS


Just a quick note tonight to tell you that there is a nice giveaway in our blogland.

It is from Connie @ shedreamsbig.blogspot.com. It is a lovely purse that she has made and a second prize of a vase made from antique silverware. Both great prizes.

Also I was watering my violet plants that I brought back from florida with me and they are green and healthy but nary a bloom. I have been watering them with fertilizer in the water but I guess the island countertop just does not get enough good light for blooming. If I can keep them alive until I get back to Florida I can put them back in the sunroom on either the window ledges or in the large black terrarium. I didn't realize how nice it is to have some window ledges until I came home and there are none in this house. They are all straight down. I think they stopped putting them in houses they built the last 25 years or so.

I have been working on my quilt blocks and am almost finished the 12 outside ones. The triangles are finished so now I just have to work on the middle. I will post a couple of them over the next few days and show you what I am thinking of doing for the middle.
Nothing like having a large wallhanging to finish, a Christmas tree skirt to finish, the beaded bag and my flower project. The 2 class projects may get wrapped up and taken to Florida to finish. Sounds more like a good winter project. This from the gal who said no pressure this summer - ha.

Many years ago I heard somewhere that fertiliser stops them flowering. This from someone who can't even keep them alive, let alone get them to flower!
