The plant has a place of honor in the living room below the Patches quilt - it used to live on the kitchen table, but it's gotten too big. I actually measured it yesterday - can you believe my Christmas cactus is more than 40 inches across! More than a yard! The quilt is 50 inches across.
I entered Patches in another contest recently. I had entered him in one earlier this year, but he wasn't juried in. So I'll try, try again. I'll keep you posted.
