I love violets! In the summer I cruise the home improvement stores for violets that have been placed in the heat and are wilting into oblivian. I call them "save a plant". Usually they are down to one wilted leaf and I talk someone into selling the illfated violet for 0.50 cents or a dollar. Then I take my plant home. Place in miracle grow violets soil, water and set in an ideal window for recover. No extra added fertilizers(will burn the plant). The wine and white flowered violet is a save a plant from 2 summers ago. The violet with no blooms is this past summers project and the purple and white flowered violet is a 4 year old save a plant. This one has a sister plant that I divided from it last year and is also blooming. Nothing like pretty flowers in Winter!
This was also packed away in a box with John Wayne. A Mirabilia Santa. I had started sometime ago and had completely forgotten about this one. Think this is OWS(old womans syndrome...) Will start stitching on this one sometime this week.
Years ago I had a larger version of this horse kit. I decided that it was needlepoint and I didn't have time to stitch. So I gave the big kit away to a friend. Then last week I found this one, which is 5"x5", bought the needlepoint kit and made some progess on it while traveling from a road service call, the other morning. Is quite a change to work on a painted canvas!
