Or ... In with the old, out with the new!
I used to get large pots of cyclamen as gifts in the old days of entertaining. They were so beautiful while they lasted but ever so fussy to care for.
This garden variety, on the other hand, thrives on neglect. They don't mind pot or planter or sharing space with a summer blooming petunia. As the summer draws to a close, the leaves push up and flowers soon follow. These hardy little fellows will be putting on a show all winter.
The old is out and the new is in and the promise of things to come ....
I hardly need more stash but... can I say "No thank you"?
So here it is, lots of light solids, gingham in assorted colors, and a few prints as well.
It will be a while before it is turned into "new" but I do see something in the future ... if I can just figure out where to put it..
I know this will go with a special group of fabrics I have been assembling for a project I have in mind and it will be fun to look at it and think of my blogging friend.
I missed out on the bloggers quilt festival this year. I just waited too long and then something went wrong with the router and there was no e-mail connections.
Here is what we did instead of sitting by the computer.
We scooped out lots of innards.
She drew a sketch of the face she wanted,
and we carved it!
Pumpkin is lit.
Grandma gets the hug ...
The old is in with the hugger and the new is out on the gate post for the neighborhood to enjoy.
