Amaryllis...

The Red Lion is still blooming...
So pretty...



The previous flowers that I hand pollinated
have big, beautiful seed pods now.
I love it when something like this works...
It puts a little Spring in the air...

I have been working on a new project,
I will show it when I make
some progress on it.

In the meantime,
have a wonderful evening.

Still Bloomin'...

Still bloomin'...
This is the second blossom
on one of my Amaryllis plants...



And here are the flowers...

It has four very large ones!

I hand pollinated the first blooms that came out,
and these are the seed pods that have grown.
I'm hoping to get some viable seeds from them.
(To grow some more plants...)

Always something to do for a gardener
to amuse themselves!  😊
So much fun!

Amaryllis...


They are blooming again...
They are so beautiful...
Two Red Lions...






And I didn't even realize it...
They were sleeping behind a chair in my workroom...
All of a sudden I saw that they were growing...
And had the biggest flower buds on them...
I brought them into the light...
They are very tall...
Reaching for the light...
One even had two flower buds on it!
Another one of God's creations!
And I enjoy them so much!

I want to say thanks for your visits... 
I also enjoy them so much!

Little Dresses...

You may have seen this little dress on my BFF's blog, 
Our Cozy Abode a while back.  I made this and sent it to her for Christmas.  She is my mentor for knitting,  and is an expert at it!  I hadn't done any knitting for many,  many years so I had forgotten how to do a lot of it.  With her help and a lot of YouTube I have progressed in this skill and I enjoy it so much.


As you can see,   it is small...
I used a variegated yarn,
 so they all come out a little different...

I have completed these two this week
and I am working on a third one now. 
These three will be for my sisters.
They will still need the embroidery done on them,
once the knitting is complete.

So far,  I made one for my friend,  two for her nieces,  two for my twin sisters for their birthdays, one for my Mom,  a red crochet cotton one that I still have,  and a pink one that got marks on it when I blocked it.  So you see,  I do really like making them.  I will need to make two more for my daughters,  after this latest one is complete.   Oh,  and then probably two more for my granddaughters!  I see lots of little dresses in my future.😊

So much fun!!   What do you do for fun? 


Edited to add:  The pattern that I use for the dresses
 is by Cindy Rice Designs.  I love the patterns 
that she has designed for dolls!  
Go check out her website
 if you are looking for 
some really cute patterns.
