this morning i took a walk and just happened to notice a butterfly on the side of the road. it looked like it dropped straight out of the sky mid flight and died. it was in such great shape (other than being dead, i mean) that i carried it home for a photo shoot. i think i've made it look convincingly alive in this shot . . .
these butterflies seem to be migrating through the area and sadly all of them just don't make it to wherever it is they are going. i have no idea just what kind it is and would love it if someone could identify it for me.
today's late lunch consisted of a plate of homemade oven roasted sweet pototoe fries. they turned out perfectly and i thought that they looked so nice that i had to take a shot of them.
i failed to post my scrap management photo yesterday. i am still making decent progress through the basket of scraps; it's even starting to look a little bit less full than it did and those of you who scrap quilt know how long it can take to make even that much happen. the scraps must breed like bunnies once the lid is placed back on because they can be very difficult to see any end to.
i have a total of 50 tulips made and i'm still not tired of them~!~also there is a growing pile of coin quilt strips . . . and a small mountain of three and a half inch squares for the nine patches that i'm making.
