Rainbow Scrap Challenge - Sunshine and Butterflies

I was ready for a weekend.  My Guy managed to make it home last night, in spite of canceled and delayed flights.  It's nice to have him home.  He'll be home for at least a couple of weeks before the next round of trips next month. 

I did make it into the sewing room a bit this week and finished up this month's scrappy butterfly block.

Scrappy Butterflies:  Available in EQ7 Block Library

I wasn't too sure about the bright print used for the top wings, but I like the end result. 

The wild flowers have been blooming here.  There is a field of Black Eyed Susans not far from the house. 


They remind me of the crayon suns I used to draw when I was little.  It's hard not to smile when I see whole fields of them.  

I do hope to get in some stitching time this evening.  We've got errands to run today.  Hopefully I have a little time this morning to check out the sunshine yellow stitching posted over at SoScrappy.

I think your butterfly looks perfect Kate - that pop of unexpected colour is simply gorgeous.

Glad My Guy made it home - and that you get to spend a little time together before the next round of trips.

I do like the print on your butterfly. They are supposed to be bright and happy animals after all. Glad you got your other half back again. It is no fun going it all alone.

Your butterfly looks great. I like that top fabric. Love your flower too. The wild flowers should be blooming on Mt. Rainier soon. We might head up there next weekend.

What a great butterfly. I was thinking the pink was my favorite but this one knocked it down to second place. Love your header and the flower just makes me think I need to make one as a wall hanging :)
Glad your other half is home for a bit. Life is much nicer with someone at your side.

Enjoy your weeks with your husband home. Last week at a quilt meeting, someone demonstrated a butterfly block similar to yours. It looked pretty easy and we'll probably make that quilt next as it looks like a good one for a group.

Aww, I love the yellows! The upper wings are just perfect!
