A NEW BEGINNING - a baby orchid

Look at the pic closely. . . do you see it? A tiny orchid is just beginning. It will be quite a while before it opens at the top of a long willowy stem and shows off its beauty. We will all just have to wait. I'll try to post a pic every 4 weeks so you can enjoy the process right along with me. Orchids are so facinating!

One of my darling kidlets recently went to Germany and Austria for a couple weeks of vacay. They had a grand time and brought some goodies back to share with me... CHOCOLATE!  And it was all in a darling wooden box.

So... let me tell you... this chocolate was [notice the past tense here...lol] sensational! Totally yummy! Too bad there were only 9 pieces in the box. Or maybe that's a good thing... good for my hips anyway.
All gone! :( ... but the box is great! If i don't store bobbins in it, perhaps it will be a good place to keep my zipper fobs.

Until next time. . . I'm sewing mug rugs and sorting UFOs... what are YOU up to??

Quilty Hugs,

Chocolates from Germany and Austria. What a treat! Yum!
I'm working on Easy Street this week. We have all the clues now.
This is the first week of the first month of the 2013 Rainbow Scrap Challenge. The color is pink. I'm looking forward to playing with my pink scraps :D

I see it!!! Yes, it takes forever for them to bloom from that stage, but then they last forever too.

Beautiful. Looking forward to watching this grow. Are you doing the RSC challenge again this year? I'll have to do some quick organizing of my bedroom and a deep clean (Neat MIL will be staying in there this weekend while watching kidlets for us) and then hope to sew a little pink today.

Orchids are wonderful and beautiful flowers. I had about 40 orchids. But one day, something killed them. I don't know what it was. Perhaps the place where the stood was too hot?
Many greetings, Petra
