I'm back!

Thought I'd share a few more pictures with you, and ask all you bloggers a question.

Here's the latest craft I've been working on. Actually, this is a long term, ongoing craft. About a year ago I started going through some of my saved materials and scraps and cutting out many squares of all sizes. From medium/large, to small. My goal? To make a quilt completly by hand. No machine sewing to it. I got quite a few blocks sewn many moons ago, then had to put it aside for life in general. Recently I've pulled it all out again, and have started sewing the blocks together again. A true patchwork, done the old fashioned way. So here are a few pictures of some of the blocks I've done, and some of the many blocks that are cut and awaiting the sewing. I'll need some ecouragement to keep going with this project, but I will keep you all updated on it's progress!
These are some of the blocks that I've already sewng together, basic 9 patch design.

These are some matched and ready to sew, and many cut and waiting.

And here is the big question for all you bloggers. I was given this plant many years ago..about 4. I've had it in the house, with nothing happening to it, just growing and keeping it alive. I always thought it was an Amaryllis. This year, I decided to plant it outside. I was surprised, to say the least, when it gained it's large middle stalk and produced these flowers. Needless to say, it's not what I thought it was, and I am clueless as to what it is. So, Do you know what this is??

Here's a basic side view.

And this is looking down from the top.
So tell you know what it is? I'd love to know!
So meet me down here on the farm, we'll figure this out together!!

Hey Karen...I had TWO people let me know what the plant was.. on Mary Janes and PrimSisters's called a Spider Lilly

TOO COOL! It's very different. I had never seen one like it before, but now I'm glad to know what it is. And honey..sewing by hand is easier then sewin on a machine if you ask takes longer yeah, but it's easier to me!
