A Few Green Things

I was right about the waterlily. By morning two of its leaves had grown enough to reach the surface, and by this evening six of them had:
We bought two more waterlilies today, and put them in the deepest part of the pond. They might take a couple of days to get to the top.

I packed away the last of the Christmas decorations today, and hung this orange and green quilt in the hallway:
This pattern is Whirlin' Dervish, designed by Margaret J. Miller, finished nearly four years ago.

But the most green thing that happened today was clue six of the Quiltville En Provence mystery!
Cute little hour-glass units, in green, lavender and neutral.
In these photos my lavenders look a lot like the neutrals, but in real life they are obviously different. It was good to finally get into the green fabrics. Now only the yellow remains uncut.

Happy new year, everyone!

I will add a link to the mystery link-up on Monday or Tuesday when it is active.

Added later: there is no link-up this week because of the early reveal. The link-up will be next week instead.


  1. Nice finish on clue 6. Mine are done too. HAPPY NEW YEAR

  2. Your blocks look neat, and I can recognise the purple! You're so quick; I haven't even started cutting yet.

  3. Happy New Year.
    Your pond is looking very attractive already. Gotta love a few waterlilies.

  4. Beautiful greens in your blocks, isn't it nice to use a new colour.
