Long Night Moon #4

Yesterday afternoon, this lovely butterfly stopped off for a visit. New wingéd eyes!



















I haven't mentioned it recently, but I'm still working on this. Super slow cloth!















For a while, I wasn't sure how to deal with the triangular pattern on the border of the fore wings. But then I remembered that I had this cloth.















It was $1 from a bin in a thrift store in San Jose, and it's some kind of seat cover thingamejig. I loved the soft color combination in contrast with the bold pattern. And it turned out to be the perfect thing.















This is pinned still. Now I have to begin stitching it. This is what I'm working on in the evenings (before House!)

Another earthquake in the early hours of the morning and it was 5.2 on the Richter scale. Never a dull moment!

How perfect is that fabric...really sets of the wings (what a great find!).
I am loving this slow cloth of yours and the photos of the butterflies.

Wow! I have a moth UFO around the studio somewhere! What size is your beautiful slow-moth? It is gorgeous!
I'm really enjoying reading about your creativity, your home (paradise it seems!), an your family. I've added you to my blog role too.....
