Foto Finish - Photographers Choice

 


For this week I have gone back to the fabulous holiday we recently had with my sister in Bali.

We have both ended up having surgery on legs this week. I have had an ACL reconstruction and partial meniscus repair in my knee. This is a result of an old netball injury which I recently reinjured. My sister works in aged care in Perth, Western Australia. On Tuesday they were having wheelchair races pushing their clients as part of Melbourne Cup day (a big horse race that is closely followed each year in both Australia and New Zealand). One of the other participants ran into the back of my sister and sliced her leg open -damaging a tendon in her foot. We are so far apart - I wish I could go and look after her but that is not to be.

Back to my photo -I really love how water lillies glow when they are photographed.

Wow! Beautiful! It really does glow. Wonderful shot.

Hope that both you and your sister are healing well and are back on your feet soon.

What a beautiful flower -- I love the water droplets on it, too! :)

That is a gorgous shot, Maree. Hope you're doing well after your surgery and that both you and your sister are on the mend.

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
"Spring"
"Vintage"        
"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.

QUILTY 365

This is my first 8 weeks of Quilty 365.  This will be linked back to http://quiltyfolk.blogspot.co.nz/2016/01/january-quilty-365-linkup.html
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.
