They are lovely,missypotter....I've had lilies change colors over the years, too. They're pretty but when I've planned a pink/rose/purple garden and yellow and orange pop up...they are dramatic but not what I wanted.

Are these fragrant? Some beautiful lilies don't have much scent to them. I simply love the smell of lilies but my SIL is so sensitive to them,she sneezes at the slightest bit of their pollen. I only bring my MIL lilies when I know Marsha is going to be out of town for a week.

My MIL received some pretty flowers and plants after several funerals this week,so her room is quite cheerful. I'm secretly glad because now I can cut some flowers for myself.Smile

Hobbies that are not crafts.

Thank you all for your kind comments. Normally we have a lot of flowers in our garden/yard as well as my vegetable garden. This year not much of either, but I do love flowers. We got a few roses and our lilies. I love them, and they make me happy.

Glad you all enjoyed them.

Lillies with scent tend to send me into a nasty headache, but I do love them so! Took me until recently to realize my uncle's favorite cologne had a lily base. I miss it.

I only have had the one lily now, and can see what a showstopper a grouping can be!

They are beautiful Missypotter, love the soft shades of pinks, my friend has a lot of different ones some yellows and a few peachy colored ones, my dad used to have the vibrant orange and black tiger lilies don't see them much any more, glad your weird weather didn't ruin this display for you, lovely lovely for sure!

I am finally getting around to posting pictures of my grandson's new quilt/comforter. This is the size that will fit on his twin bed. The actual color is a cross between the 2 different pictures. I took one with the flash and one without, but it is actually somewhere in between.












I forgot to take a picture of the small throw pillow I made out of the left over material. Embarassed 

There are parts that I know my mother would do over, but I think he will be happy.

These are some decorations I made, sort of.

I bought this frame and added some flowers.



This one I made the vase a long time ago for my parents. I got it back when we moved my Dad into the assisted living last year. Then I added the flowers for fall.

Cute quilt I'm sure he'll love it when he gets it. Mom does her ties that way too. The fall décor is pretty too.

Love to see all your handiwork,missypotter...I've never done a vase,only bowls.

Your quilt is so cheerful!  I'm sure it will be well loved. How often did you add the ties? Did you follow a pattern? Do  they follow seam lines?

When it is winter and we are not working outside, hubby loves me to sit with him him in the family room and watch TV. I can't just sit and and watch so I always have something in my hands to do. His favorite thing is to buy me jig saw puzzles to work while we are together.

This winter was a 3 puzzle winter. I never do less than 1,000 pieces but this year I did a 1,500 puzzle. It was really fun. Here is the last one, but I have to find a picture of the first as it looks like Hogwarts library.

But this was the big one:

Here are some pictures of Lily's blankets.







This blanket has a matching smaller one for Miriam's baby doll.

I took a glass blowing class a couple of weekends ago. Here are some pictures. The first set of pictures are of the process (of others doing the class). The second set is of my finished bowl. I didn't have anyone to take pictures of me actually doing it. Very Happy





It was so much fun. I want to doing it again. There are so many choices and colors.

Thanks ladies, I have to confess the difficult parts were done by my teacher. But he let me do a lot and then just instructed me. It was so much fun.
