bits & pieces

I'm having a cactus moment!
This plant has been living with us for over 2 years.
It showed no growth at all.
I thought it might be dead, I couldn't really tell if it was growing or had become petrified.  Not petrified as in scared, petrified as in dead and turning to rock!  Still, I watered it, wiped off the cobwebs, kept it in a sunny spot, and figured that even if it was going to die, it was a unique specimen.  Then, I started noticing something funny going on up on top.
Now it is sprouting out little clubby branches!
So we'll have to watch and see what takes shape!

Last night my quilt group, Ham Lake Piecemakers, had our summer picnic/party at the home of one of our members, Nancy.  After our potluck feast, we had a little socializing and show-and-tell.
Maggie showed this quilt, just back from the longarm quilter, Dawn.
It's a pleasure to see one of my patterns all sewn up by someone other than me!
This pattern is Connections and I think it was from 2015 for Quilt MN.

Yesterday also brought some work in our garden, and picking more green beans.
A few had been allowed to grow past their prime!  I much prefer them at a smaller, more tender age!
