Foto Finish - Yellow

 
 
 

We have just returned from a week in Vanuatu.  I quickly downloaded my photos and was expecting to find an image of at least on yellow flower but was surprised to find the yellow in these images.  I dont remember the web being yellow - I think I was only looking at the spider.  There are no poisonous spiders on Vanuatu so this fellow is not as scary as he looks. 
The weather was only so-so - the sun only shone briefly on our first and last days.  We had one really wet day but the worst part was that we were both sick on the holiday - we took the winter lurgy bugs with us.  They seem to have been particularly bad this winter.  I had been sick for a week before going on holiday and took the first half of the week to get over it and then my husband got worse and is still not well.  However it was still good to have a break away and to see another country we hadn't been to before.

He looks pretty scary and very, very big!

Hope you and your guy get to feeling much better soon.

Cool pictures, I like the drops, they look like part of the webbing and sticky. I'm not big on spiders, but I do like taking their pictures.

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. 

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.
