I haven't heard much rumbling in blogland about the amaryllis plants, but I just wanted to say mine is over 26" tall and blooming! I thought it would be out today, but it's not quite open. It was fun to watch it, even though it didn't bloom by Christmas.
I haven't done a whole lot quilt related in the past few days. Sat. Paul and I went to the Bridal Showcase. I am shocked at the cost of photography! I think I should go into that career in my next life. It's over 1200 just for the photographer, before pictures, mileage, or more than 2 hours. Seriously there is no way we could have the photographer at the pictures beforehand and the wedding and do it in under 2 hours! It would cost more for the photography, than for the entire wedding!! So after being very dismayed, we decided that we'll have to find a budding photographer, or my brother offered to take some pictures on his new digital camera. I think we may have like 3 friends take pictures and hope for the best.
My brother Ed and Paul fixed my pickup powersteering line and Paul's pickup fan pully or something like that on Sat. afternoon. Sun. we were up at crack of dawn and picked up Ed to go ice fishing. It was about 40 degrees, but the wind was kind of blowing. We didn't have very good luck. We came home and took naps.
Tonight I did a bunch of calling for the wedding and then I cut all the light fat quarters for my two YBR quilts. I got a little sore, so I had to quit. I'll do the others tomorrow night.
