"Let Me Surprise You" is Quilted

We made a trip to the ranch this weekend and I put the second Hawaiian cruise quilt top (Let Me Surprise you by Charlotte Angotti) on the quilter.  I may or may not do a little more work on it using my domestic machine.  I think I would like it better if I did some stitching in the ditch, but right now that machine is set up for another quilt.

For a time it looked like we might be forced to stay an extra night at the ranch because of a winter storm advisory, but it has held off long enough for us to return to town and squeeze in a quick stop at the grocery store.

My Christmas cactus is loaded with blooms. Putting it in a room that only had natural light through a southeastern window certainly made a difference.

I just love the combination of colors in that quilt and I'm not a blue lover normally.

Your cactus looks great. I bet if you repot it early next fall it will be even more loaded with blooms.

I really like your quilt-blue is my favorite!
pretty cactus, I always think of my MIL when I see them, she had several.
