Christmas is well and truly a memory with all the Christmas decorations away.
I am starting to enjoy my holidays now that I have been able to get a bit of crafting done.
There has also been some socialising. I had a wonderful day out with Elyte, Robin, Jo, Anne and Annie on Tuesday with a trip to Threadbare in Castlemaine. What an amazing shop! There were so many beautiful fabrics and all I could manage to come home with were 3 threads that I hadn't been able to find locally. Pathetic isn't it, and I call myself a patchworker?
A few trips to the movies have eventuated. No 2 son took me to see the Hobbit movie, Mum and I went to see the Railway Man and I saw the Hobbit movie again today with the girls from work. I have enjoyed both movies and I have some more on my wish list to see before it's back to work.
Now to that stitching I mentioned.....
There has been some quilting on this....2 rows done, so many still to do.
Some stitching here.. The March winds Stitchery from Kathy Schmitz...
Now just had to share some flower pics...
I have been waiting over 10 years for this orchid to flower. It seems it just needed the right position with enough light that it was needing to flower.
It is a crucifix orchid. I must say a very unattractive plant on the whole but if I have tolerated it for ten years in anticipation of a flower, I figure I can definitely tolerate it now that it has made spikes of flowers.
The flowers are just a little bunch of tiny blooms at the end of a very long spike. quite amazing really.
Hopefully it will flower again for me next year.

No 1 son is doing a tour of Europe. While in London he visited the Harry Potter Exhibition. When it was in Sydney a few years ago we both really wanted to go but unfortunately we didn't make it.
He sent me some postcards from the exhibition in the mail this week.
What a comedian!
I told him I want him to bring me home a house elf.
Cheers for now.... back to the stitching
