Christmas cactus update and a good book

This book has the best ideas! It is full of gorgeous patterns, and most of them would be beautiful for any time of year, with a change in color. This book and I will be spending a lot of time together in the next few weeks. :>} Our aloi plant spent the summer in the porch, and recently came in for the winter. It got big! It reminds me of a large green octapus.
The blossoms on the Christmas cactus are opening up. The flowers looks like pink birds getting ready for flight.

Your photos look good. Your cactus plant reminds me again of our different seasons. I can remember when Tim wanted one of those plants for his 10th birthday and that was it June, he just loved the flowers on it.
Have a good week.

That book looks great too....are you going to sew something? Or read and look at pictures -I can spend hours doing that!
