Colors, colors everywhere

Between my color theory class and Evelins quilt and my yard...the colors are just striking.

I've been working on the strip sets for Evelin's bargello so I thought I'd share just one set.
OMGosh aren't they just YUMMY?
And here's closeups of the fabrics.

One more set to go and then I can start cutting them into strips to begin putting the quarter sections together to let the design begin to grow. OOOO I'm lovin' this one.!!

Yesterday Don came in & yelled for me to "Come outside quick".
So I did!!
Without my camera Duh!!
Here is a side shot of the flutterby that he had seen. Another black swallowtail.
See....I'm not the only one who is impressed with it. He hadn't seen one either.
Like a good husband, Don went back in & grabbed my camera and while he was gone....the butterfly landed on a flower right smack dab in front of my and spread his wings and stayed there . Like he was posing just for me in all his glory. OMGosh he is beautiful!!
Well it was *just for me* because by the time Don got back outside.... away he fluttered and just wouldn't come close enough again to get a really good pic. This will have to do.
This one was also out there in the same area so I got a quick shot. This is a Common Wood Nymph.

It's pretty good sized. About 2-3 inches.


  1. Love your blog - I never know what I am going to see! Flowers, Butterfly, quilting, crayons! You got it goin on girl!

  2. I agree with Jacquie. Your blog is awesome! I obviously have tons of work to do before mine is even a twentieth as good. I love seeing all that you put in. It's just like talking to you, and I just don't have that knack.
