As beautiful as they are, Blue Triangle Butterflies rarely sit still long enough to allow close observation - being able to capture one in photos (after many attempts) was a pleasant bonus! I love the touch of bright blue which is eye catching as they flutter around the garden.
Our bromeliads, sheltered under the shade of our huge frangipani, are in flower. Their bright shades of coral pink open to reveal wonderful purple and yellow.
The spotted Oleander Butterfly is less flighty than the Blue Triangle, yet always a delight to see. This one is resting on our avocado tree.
It is an honour to have my Aussie Landscape quilt featured in Down Under Quilts magazine annual Australian issue, arriving in newsagents and libraries now (Issue 174). Aussie Landscape highlights the beautiful and ethical fabrics printed by several Australian small textile houses/cottage businesses.
Making Miss C's pretty checkerboard quilt was very rewarding. This week I have been steadily working on another very similar one, most likely to be added to my Etsy shop. Today I finished sewing the the quilt top, now to choose backing and binding fabrics - again, all from my stash. Pink binding or green binding??? Maybe I should choose the backing fabric first. :)
