Kind of a Little Hodgepodge Today

You will see my Christmas cactus that will be in full bloom around Halloween time! This plant is probably 15 years old at least - and is actually two plants that I finally put in the same pot several years ago. Last year it started to thrive and had a lot of blooms on it, but this is year it is loaded!! My daughter's cactus is going to bloom for Halloween, also.
Have been putting together a mod Christmas table runner that was in the Quilting Arts Gift edition. Really don't know what I will do with it, but wanted to make it and maybe one of the granddaughters will want it. Have another one pieced but not appliqued. Might put some snowmen on that one. It is pretty cool. So, here it is ready for quilting.
Then, the next pictures are of some fabric I ordered from Hancock's of Paducah - all on sale half-price. Have no idea what I will do with it but just decided to go shopping one morning. Sometimes when I send for fabric online, I am a little disappointed. However, these are really neat and only three of them look a little out of place all lined up. There are so many really cute patterns out there now for quite simple quilts that have tons of fabric in them - I know I will come up with something eventually. Right now, I am thinking about that lovely toile that I got at Joann's. Have an idea for it but it would never be done for this Christmas! Isn't quilting the greatest way to spend your time - and money, too!! LOL! But it's so worth it. (Click to enlarge)

Look at all the great fabric!

You asked about the Polka-Dot Girls pattern. I bought it at Treasured Threads (www.treasuredthreads.typepad.com). The pattern is by Bronwyn Hayes.
