May TIF done and Orchid Cactus



I finished the TIF May challenge piece! I have to admit that pale pink is not one of my favourite colours so this one was a bit harder to work on than the others have been. I must make mention that in the bottom left corner I've used a treatment from 'Treasury of Crazy Quilt Stitches' by Carole Samples (in the ivory area right on the corner). Another of her patterns is to the right of the deep pink at the bottom (looks somewhat like stars). The seam treatment between the ivory and deep pink on the lower right is from the 'Elegant Crazy Quilt Seam Treatments' e-book by Pam Kellogg. The little motif directly above the seam treatment (between it and the ciggie silk) is also from Pam. http://kittyandmedesigns.blogspot.com/ for more information on the ebook.

The second picture is of one of my orchid cactus flowers (thanks Arlee for the plant ID). This plant and the pink one both have been absolutely drenched in blossoms this year. I, of course, being a twit, forgot to take pictures when they were at their best. Drat! Hope you like it.

I think you did a good job on your TIF even with the colors you don't favor.

Your orchid catus is beautiful. I wish mine would consider blooming!
