orchids and wonky trees

it finally stopped raining today - yes, I'm in sunny queensland and its been raining on and off since last Friday and yesterday it rained so much I couldn't take pippi for a walk !

so this morning I thought I'd take a few photos of the gorgeous orchids in my dad's garden to share with you - they are such beautiful flowers and they last for ages as well !

not sure what they're called but I'm sure they each have a name!  see the beautiful blue sky finally showing :)

and this one my dad brought inside before he left so that I could enjoy it close up - love the colours ♥

I've been making progress on the wonky trees - just need to get some background fabric to suit (these fabrics are just for photo purposes !) and I'm going to try machine applique - fingers crossed.

I managed to find enough fabrics out of the scraps I brought with me to do the trees but not enough for the backgrounds - didn't realise how much I'd miss having my stash close by !

and I'm nearly finished the minis I'm making for the table topper blog hop which started this week - my day is next Monday 23 April so hope you can join me then :)

  1. Now I see them - can't see the woods for the wonky trees! They look just right Leanne!

    And the orchids look good! Looking forward to Monday's reveal!
