Flowering Cactus

Look what I found on my Cactus last night. The one on the left is in full bloom, the one on the right is as it was opening.
I have been told this is a Echinopsis Eyresii. Commenly referred to as the Pink Easter Lily Cactus.
It is a beautiful flower but the bloom only last one night. I brought it indoors so it may last an extra day. I h ave had this plant for a long time and has bloomed once every year for the past ten years

Look at what I won.

The Missouri River Quilt Guild held a quilt show this weekend. I am a member of this guild and I must say it was a lot of work but a REALLY BIG show. We had 301 quilts on display. We received a lot of positive comments about the quilts and displays. We had members donate gift baskets etc for a raffle drawing. Guess what? I was the lucky winner of a very nice chair painted by one of our very talented members.

I may post more pictures in a few days.
