Show us some pics Candles! We have lots of easy seeds. Let us know what you want.

These sunflowers were at the grocery and were pretty cool. The pic shows orange but they are very red with purple 'collar' and dark center. Anyone know the name?

Making Snowman earrings for Cousin's G'kids.
Had to make Small ones for tiny ears. Got one more pair to make.Tomarrow first day of winter.
Then it will be SPRING> Yeah!!!

Your sunflowers are beautiful Seray! There are several hybrid crosses and select O/P sunflowers for a huge selection of colors. Moulin Rouge is deep reddish maroon, along with Ring of Fire and Magic mixed colors. Sometimes a skilled florist can pick and choose from their own selections. It's just too hard to tell.

I have a huge amount of more or less generics available now, but I'm going to try some new and different ones in the Spring. Everybody seems to love sunflowers and they're so easy to grow for most. When I get large packets of the special ones, I'll split them up and share with those that are interested.

Al

Thanks for the info Al. I haven't seen any this dramatic before and I was just curious. Look good in my Goth garden if I can find it. :)

I'll have to search it out. If I can find it I'll send you some seeds to try with the rest of yours. Didn't think to ask the florist there at the grocery. I'll go back. :)

Hubby gre a few, It was dry last summer but a Brown one managed to make it and bloom, but before I got to get a pic. One of them dog-gone Donkeys or the mule ate it. Believe me Hubby was not a happy camper. They had to reach thru the Fence, so may have been our Darlin' Charley. uh-oh...run Charley Run!.....

Phoenix, AZ(Zone 9a)

Good afternoon peeps! Trying to finish up last minute Christmas stuff - lol.

sk - your Mom will have a blast. We're forecast to be close to 70 all week long! Sure beats snow!

Hornell, NY(Zone 5a)

Hey - The big storm missed us! It blew right straight south of here. Everybody south and east of us along the coast got hammered. We usually get it east from Lake Erie and Buffalo but not this time. Not even a trace of white stuff.

OH Mindy, those are just beautiful! ^You are so talented. I so envy you since I haven't been able to do this for a couple years now. My mom does the kind with the tiny thread like No.3 but I never could do those. I like to use the knitting thread when I could. Fingers don't cooperate any more. Thank you so much for my DIL's baby blanket. She loved it and is going to bring the baby home from the hospital with it. You are so sweet to put so much time and love into making these. I know how much work it is and how time consumeing it is. Thank you so much and the snowman was so pretty as well. It is hanging on my tree. Thank you so much.

Love those Mindy!!! So pretty. Thanks for showing us the pics.

Glad you got a reprieve Al. Hope it holds for a little while longer.

Hugs to the rest of you. Hope you had a great day!

Fair Play, SC(Zone 7b)

Hi Seray, hope you got some rest from all the game work. I really enjoyed watching all that.

Phoenix, AZ(Zone 9a)

Nice Mindy!! You are very talented!

Only 5 days until Christmas...

Washington, IN(Zone 6a)

Hey all ,
Mindy those are beautiful.You have talked about them and showed us them ,that I think you have talked me into getting my threads and yarn out and giving it a shot for the winter again LOL I always loved crocheting and just quit when I hurt my fingers and haven't tried again but am going to now.
Have a great day all !

Barnesville (Charle, GA(Zone 8b)

Very pretty, Mindy. You did great.

Monticello, KY(Zone 6b)

Thanks everyone.
Flower I am humbled to read your post about maybe starting again. Just don't rush it and quit when your fingers say so and I think you'll do fine.
Mekos so glad your DIL liked the baby afghan it was a joy to make.
I'm off to see if I can finish up santa before the mail runs so I can mail it to my baby brother since I won't be seeing him

Montrose, AR(Zone 8a)

hello all... Beautiday day here... Ive managed to get the floors swept and mopped and the kitchen cabinets all washed down.... My boys went and picked up a truck load of pecan hulls for me so I think im going out to the flower beds and give them a nice layer of hulls... Sure wish I could talk them into going and getting a load of cow manure for me...I guess im going to have to bribe them for that...I told them thats all I wanted for christmas....They thought I was crazy??? lol

Hi Everyone

Glad to see everyone is doing well. Cool sunny day here. 33 last night. Warmer tonight. Closer and closer LOL

Xmas is always a great time. My DH and I we are off from our work and go into a nice quiet retreat until the new year. Sometimes away from home and sometimes not. This year not. :) Our families are not large and are spread out so except for Xmas day we can shut down and retreat inward. Meditation is always a good thing and has been part of our life for almost 40 years.

Before I shut this computer down for it's own much needed rest I just wanted to tell everyone here how much fun and joy you have brought to my life this year. It's been one of the liveliest years I've had in a long time trying to keep up with everyone. You have helped me grow and change. You furthered skills that were in infancy and built up confidence in my own abilities. I actually have flower gardens because of you and ideas that keep me up into the wee hours.

You've challenged and helped improve my interpersonal skills and allowed me to express who I really am without turning off your own computers when you see my post. I thank you for that. It's a rare thing outside the virtual world to have so many people who are tolerant and supportive of newbie's mistakes and missteps and just general wackiness.

I'm looking forward to next year because I have so many wonderful people to play with and cry with and just generally be there for. Which makes us all more human. Best wishes to all for a wonderful holiday may your soul be renewed and your heart be filled with joy!

See ya next year! Happy new year!!!

Hugs



Washington, IN(Zone 6a)

Mindy, it is beautiful. Is it a wall hanging? He is as cute as can be.
You did a wonderful job.

Monticello, KY(Zone 6b)

Thank you no he's an afghan I just took the picture to show the face off rest is just dark green background

Barnesville (Charle, GA(Zone 8b)

Well, he sure is cute and I know a lot of work. Mekos will love it.
What are you making next?? I made some snowman earrings, but too late to send out to anyone.
They are cute I have one pair already on the wires, the rest are just laying there waiting. I make them in different colors. I used to make them and take them to work. I'll have to get you a picture of some of my jewelry that I made.

Monticello, KY(Zone 6b)

Currently I have a knitted cotton hand towel on the needles. Just started it so hoping to get it done and not rip it out. So far the pattern seems easy enough.
I love snowmen the owner of the beauty shop we go to gave me a little tiny glass one that matches a bigger one my sister gave me last year.

Fair Play, SC(Zone 7b)

MINDY, that is beautiful!!! WOW you did a great job. I love it. You are just so talented! (my mouth open drooling)

Barnesville (Charle, GA(Zone 8b)

Here is a pic of some of my jewelry. Snowmen are there too.
