NZ Native Wildlife For Foto Finish


The topic for Foto Finish this week is wildlife. This is a collage of a few of our native creatures. On the top row is the flightless Takahe and a Green Ghecko. On the bottom row is the Giant Weta and a Weka. All of these photos have been taken while I have been away on Women In Action trips.

Thanks for sharing wildlife from your neck of the woods. I'm not so sure I'd want a bug crawling on my face - or any part of me for that matter. Nice photos!

Great photos. I really like the picture of the Green Ghecko. (Where do they get the names?) I with 501 QB, not sure I'd want a bug that big on my face!

This is my first 8 weeks of Quilty 365.  This will be linked back to
I started my blocks on November 1st and have decided to sew them together in 2 week strips.  I am thinking that I will end up with too many blocks to make a well proportioned quilt so may have to incorporate the last few months into the backing -we will see how it progresses.  My blocks are 4.5" square and I am varying the size of my circles.  I am using scrap pieces of my low value fabrics for the background -even piecing many of the background squares to use up smaller scrap pieces.  As I do a lot of scrap quilting and love working with tiny scraps of fabric I am also making some of my circles scrappy.
I belong to a private facebook group of 50 fellow quilters and several of us are playing along with this project. 

Two Years Of 12 x 12 Art Quilts

A group of local quilters has recently completed two years of making 12" x 12" art quilts -completing one every two months working to a selected theme for each one.  I really enjoyed this experience and am now taking part in a 20" x 15" challenge working to colour themes.  We have three months to complete these. 

Here are some of my 12 x 12 quilts
"Temptation"  -my idea for this was "The Grass Is Always Greener" and it is made in my favourite style of sewing small crumbs of fabric together. "Perspective" "Nursery Rhyme" - "Rain Rain Go Away" "Autumn"
I will need to track down some of the other images on my computer and will put them in another post. 
It has been a long time since I last posted but we have been having a conversation about blogging in an on line group I belong to and it has inspired me to have another go at this.
