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 (you can see better detail by clicking on the photos)

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!
