Butterflies and more..........................

 Sarah's folks gave her this quilt kit for Christmas a few years ago. She asked me to make it for her, so I did!! It was a kit from Connecting Threads. There was enough fabric to piece together the backing too.
 It turned out pretty good:)
 I pieced this one awhile ago and just got it finished.

 I won the fat quarter pack of the fruit and veggie fabric,  I used my stash of white on white I think I bought a yard or so to finish it. The backing is bright sale fabric:)

 This picture was taken a very long time ago. Click on it to make it bigger and let me know if you find yourself in it. All you former Jolly Jacks and Jill's 4-H members:)

 Carrie, Rachel and I were in Sioux Falls over the weekend and none of us had been to the butterfly house, and now we have:)  We weren't in there long before 2 landed on Carrie. When we were ready to go Rachel said she wasn't leaving until one landed on her. Well it didn't take long and she had a nice ponytail adornment!!
 There were a few of these cute little quail there too.
 This made me think of you Julia C, you need to find an old wooden step ladder to add to your flower gardens!!
 Boating to the neighbors island, that is island of the birds!

 We got out and the boys motored away into the sunset....

 We got off and checked out the island these guys are to young to fly so just squawked at us.
 Lots of little fish the moms bring to feed their babies.
