I Have ONE Plant


I stitched on Unicorn and Fairy Magic last night. I finished the fairy's wings and I have most of the tail done. It felt really good to work on this one again. I still have to attach some petite beads and bugle beads which are on order at the craft store. I really like how it looks so far. I still haven't decided on how to finish it but that's not the hard part. Finding some fabric that compliments the design is where I have problems but that is due to living in a small town.

The weather here has started to get cool so it was time for me to bring my Christmas Cactus inside. This is my one and only plant that I have. I can kill just about anything but for some reason I can keep a Christmas Cactus alive. In about six weeks I should have close to a hundred blooms. That is how big my C.C is! Even though I can keep a C.C. alive that doesn't mean it will. My kitties love to attack it and rip the leave off of it. It is too big to be a hanging plant and to big to be put on a table so right now until all the blooms appear it is living in my closet!

I hope you are leaving the door open so it can get some light! ;)

Oh, your unicorn and fairy are looking so wonderful - almost there now! Thanks for the update, I have been dying to see it!

Don't kick yourself about too much - Christmas cacti can be kinda tough to keep going - not so hard to keep alive, but pretty hard to keep them happy enough so that they bloom for you!! I just bought a new one - tons of buds, but bet it won't bloom much after another year or two :-)

lol. Yes, cats do have a way with plants. Nice work on your unicorn & fairy! Thanks for the progress snap.

Maybe that's the sort of plant I need ... I just look at plants and they die - although, in saying that, I bought 2 indoor plants when I moved into a new place 1 1/2 years ago, and they're still surviving - miracles do happen! Your unicorn is looking great too ... I can see a happy dance coming before too long :)

Your U&FM is so pretty! What a cute piece.

That CC sounds huge! My thumb is black. I also have only one plant that can handle my abuse, and it is sad looking indeed.

Talking to your cc might help :o)
and some water now and then...
Oh, and get him a table, by the window and out of the closed, would help a lot...
Bye Juul. :o)
