Finished Quilt and small rainbows in my garden




















After a few months of hard patchwork and quilting, I'm now ready to meet Emília. It is such a thrill when you finish a project, specially a long one! Mission acomplished! It really didn't turn out perfect, but considering it was my first quilt... I think it was very good. One can lean a lot by making little experiments before actually starting on a real thing. It didn't occur to me that this kind of technique could bring up such complicated questions of composition, you really have to think and imagine where exactly is that piece going to, next which? Near which? Against which...
And then there are surprises, as this one:
















I usually work with a lamp right next to me, and when I was sewing the filling on the patchwork, I turned the quilt, and for a moment I saw the light passing through it... here's the result! It's like a world inside a different reality...

And now, hands to work again! New brooches on the way, here's a peep:

















Finally, new rainbows arrived to my garden... can you imagine a skin pattern like this? I had never seen such a beautiful worm! And it is big too! I wonder if it will turn into a butterfly...















This is an amazing cactus flower:
















It smells horribly, because it feeds on insects! It has a delicated appearence, a fine texture, yet it is thick and fat, like a cactus leaf... curious!
