I am surprised that I was able to get five squares done this week because I spent so much time on my Christmas cards. Yes, I said Christmas cards! So many people have stopped sending them, but I love to get cards in the mail and I like sending them. For the past few years I have been making my own. Last year I sent out 50 and will likely do the same this year.
On to my squares. I had ordered some new variegated colors from DMC and I wanted to do some different things with them this week.
More flowers of a different type. I grew up with African Violets and my mother even belonged to the African Violet Society. We had a big bay window in the dining room where the light must have been perfect and she always had several growing. I bought this one in ShopRite in May (probably for Mother's Day) and it was in a pink Chinese take-out container. I put it on my kitchen window sill in my own blue and white pot. It has been blooming and blooming and has many more buds. I love the large purplish blue flowers that are perfect for my mostly blue and white kitchen. My mother would have approved.
I am linking up with Off the Wall Friday.
