Butterfly Mosaic

Beth and I have been making mosaic’s together. Mine is inspired by the Broad-margined Azure butterfly which is fairly common in the Mt Lofty Ranges region. Also featured in the mosaic are butterfly attracting flowers; Sweet Bursaria (white), Strawflower (yellow) and Pale Fan-flower (purple).

Baby Ivy’s quilt

I made this quilt for baby Ivy. I chose bright colours but had a lot of trouble with the design. Top tip; don’t choose the main fabric with a white background (the monkey fabric) if it’s against other bold colours. To compensate, I ended up only using a small amount of the monkey fabric. I enjoyed using colour-changing thread for the swirls though. Hope to meet Ivy soon.
