This was the lovely view from my hotel room in New York -- actually the room itself was very pretty, if petite, and had a fabulous bed and free wireless. So, I pretty much kept the shade closed whenever I was in there! (I keep seeing a quilt in this photo, though)
I think I mentioned that one of my mini-groups was exchanging little quilts with the theme of "hearts". Here is mine all done, and hanging in the home of the recipient. Whenever we exchange things, we draw numbers to see who gets first choice -- and it's always interesting to see who chooses what, since we all have somewhat different taste and styles.
Here are the hearts I received -- a very bright and eclectic variety of fabrics!
Also, a couple of weeks ago I posted a photo of the beginning of the flower stalk of this honey bush. Here it is today! I think this is about 18" long...
