Pretty flowers

How gorgeous are these flowers, and would you believe they are artifical so they'll last forever. I need to work on arranging them more nicely, though. My friend Lyle picked them up at the markets amongst some other bamboo and twiggy type stuff he wanted for a tall display. I didn't have a vase big enough so I put them in this copper basket-y thing (don't know what it is called) I bought years ago at the markets too for $1!
I've been doing a bit of hand quilting on my Forget Me Not quilt this week. I am using candlewicking thread and biggish stitches so it is going along quite quickly, and am about halfway done.

Oooh, so pretty Vanessa! I love quilting with the bigger thread and bigger stitches!
