Some more quilt blocks I'm looking into for my madcatBOM (one, two, three for the woven block).
I'm not a ruler user, but I thought this method for making hexagon 3D blocks with no y-seam was pretty awesome. So much so it gets it's own link.
Did you know turning off Niagara Falls is a thing?? Here's an interesting little video here.
I love coffee, pretty much any way you slice it, so this article has a ton of facts that interest me.
Check out our tree! The new growth from a few weeks ago has at least doubled in size!
We have a rose bush which we have really put the ringer. We got it last year and it has not had a very good Winter. We got it late in the season, it's from home depot and is a tall plant with a round top, like a little tree. We had it outside but it kept falling over in high winds and being battered by rain. When it started getting really cold in January, we brought it inside bc it was starting to look very beaten up. It certainly liked being inside, although it was a bit confused. It started flowering again! We liked having it inside, even if we sometimes snagged our clothes or skin on it. We did start to notice that it had aphids. Soon there were millions of them!! We put it back outside after the big storm. But it snowed again, and the rose tree got bent far over, so we laid it down on the ground. We intended to get it back inside pretty quickly, thinking that now the aphids would be gone. Unfortunately, we waited a bit too long, and when we brought it in, the leaves were quite black and it looked very terrible. We're worried that it won't recover.
I was hoping some of my readers might have some experience with roses? We really want to save it, but I'm having trouble finding out any info, as it's hard to boil down the problem. Can anyone help?
