Red Ruby Wine & A Yam Surprise

Sounds a bit like a food post, doesn't it? Nope just some silliness. Here I thought I didn't have any house plants, & look what I found in my cupboard! I love the leaves on it. They look like dragon's wing to me.
I've finished quilting the "Red Ruby Wine" quilt. That's what I've decided to name it. I wish I would've done less circles, & put straight lines around the water lily motifs, but I enjoyed this quilt so much I may try it again in a different color & size. Here it is, pinned to a blocking screen. It's still quite wet.

Here are a couple of detail shots.
Well I proved to myself I can do small detail circles & Sliver metallic thread on my Longarm Lily!

You've saved yourself some money by sprouting your own! Garden centers sell those for big $$$. I'd say plant it and enjoy the leaves.

Yeah I threw one in the flower bed in my back yard and it is growing like crazy. Of course we don't have moose in our yard grazing. Just coconut crabs, rats, and the occasional feral cat.

The quilting is very impressive - good job, but the yam is a nice reminder that I don't have to visit Walmart to have a nice houseplant! mmm, seems the color is similar on both the fabric and the plant. ??
