What a pleasant way to end the year...

Hello!

This morning, a beautiful amaryllis bloom welcomed me as I walked into the kitchen.   I received it about 2 weeks ago from a friend.  

In the past three days, I have watched it go from one bud, to three, then having one open over night, with another beginning to open today.  I think it will be fully open in the morning.  The third bloom will probably be open by the end of the week.





This is a view of it with the sun shining on it, and the background in shadow.












What a pleasant way to end the year, with pretty new blooms.

On the way home this evening, I took this picture.  There is only one jet in this picture, but at the time I was taking it, there were eight jets in the air.

Here's the pot holder I started yesterday.

It is a challenge, to make a small quilt each month.


I think it sounds like fun.  :)
