My Amaryllis is blooming!

I took pictures of it last night in the dark, so hopefully you can see them. It's actually really pretty and was fun to watch it grow.
Last night I went to Sit & Sew. I worked on the design of my landscape banner for the back of the sanctuary of the church. I think it looks pretty good, but I didn't unpack to take pictures. I just used scraps of similar colored fabrics, so I hope it turns out the way I would like it to. I'll have to take pictures of it tomorrow.
Tonight I am going to a calendar class. Well really, it's kind of a BOM only, it's a finished block that you put on the quilted panel and add a paper calendar every month. I think it will really turn out neat. Tonight we do Feb.

Wow it's beautiful. All I can do is look at others flowers. My poor plant has beautiful greens almost 36 inches tall and no sign of a flower. It's like watching Jack in the Bean Stalk.
