Scratched the Itch

Paper piecing calls to me... I just felt compelled to make some more butterflies. Here are the recently made.

See the one in the upper left of the picture?  It should be yellow with lighter yellow dots. Where does the camera get the idea that it's orange with yellow dots?  (The pink didn't show up very well, so I made a close up of it. See below.)

The lilac colored one has white from the backing of my granddaughter, Ashleigh's wedding quilt backing.  I think about her every time I use some of those scraps.

Anyway, I used up all the patterns I printed out, so now I'm making some paper pieced things for my Halloween diorama. I printed out the patterns for  a Mimbulus Mimbletonia, a Mandrake, and a Hogwarts Shield.  We'll see how they work out. I'll frame them.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Here with the Hubby working again a few hours everyday, we will have a regular weekend again.  When you are retired every day runs about the same. (I think we are doing yard work tomorrow... oh yay....
