first finish what you have unfinished

After the snow, the ice, now the rain and gales,
definitely after 13 years in England I learnt a lot about the weather.
A loop scarf I finished. I have many things half done, 
I decided that is time to finish the unfinished. 
My mum often gave me this sound advice: 
'first finish what you have unfinished'.

The pilea Jo gave me is not a baby any more, 
she's growing and looks happy.

The quilt is almost finished, 
it has a little M embroidered because is a custom order.

I've started to work on another one.

Hi Alessandra,
the scarf and the quilt are wonderful!
That's such a good guideline in life, getting things finished is so hard and so rewarding!

Have nice Sunday!

Love the quilt!
I have a baby pilea too and it is not doing well... I don't know if it is the lack of light or the room temperature. Do you have any piece of advice for me? Thanks!

Thank you all, so nice to read your words!!!
Fanny S, Jo gave me a good advice about watering: instead of watering directly on the soil, put the vase on a basin with water and leave it for a while ( the roots will take the water they need) until you feel that the soil is wet when you touch the surface. I keep my plant on a windowsill with no direct sunlight but is quite illuminated, also there's a heater below that window sill in that way the plant stays warm in winter, at night I move it on the table so it doesn't get too cold! hope this help, if not write to Jo of toots blog or Mieke of Mieke Willems ( they are quite experts on growing pileas!).
