Today I am working on my second Sunny Gecko wall hanging. This one has a darker background so that it looks more like the ti plant is in a group of plants. The gecko now seems to be hiding among the leaves. I think I like this coloration better than with a light background and I wonder what you think!! The gecko doesn't stand out as much but they don't when they are looking for insects to eat in nature, so maybe it is a little more natural.

Aloha everyone! Just hot off the press is my newest pattern, Sunny Gecko. This is a delightful small wall hanging of a gecko sitting on a colorful Ti leaf waiting for its next bug meal. We have many geckos in Hawaii and the green day glo geckos are quite colorful. The red spots on them vary from individual to individual. They seem to love to come into the house and leave little presents all over. Why can't they stay outsiede where the bugs are?? This is a picture of the first one that I made. If you check my website you will see it computerized in a different colorway which I think will be stunning!

My new Hawaiian applique pattern is done!!! Seahorse World. Four seahorses hanging around the ocean floor among the sea grasses and coral. I love this square wall hanging that is small enough that you don't need a big wall for it.

I have just finished another quilt using my pattern Brightly Squared. This is such a nice pattern to put together. In this quilt I used one tropical fish fabric for all the bigger squares. This quilt was to remind me of looking into an aquarium, maybe the white should have been another blue!! Since I am having such fun playing around with this pattern this will not be the last time I show you a quilt where I used this pattern.

My pretty little butterfly. I beaded this butterfly up and it is ready to sew on to a purse. The design of the purse has not been decided the ideas are still in my head. Just another way to use one of the butterflies in my Butterflies For Amy Two pattern. This purse will go along with me for showing to my class on the Stitchin' Heaven cruise that I am teaching on in Sept. I will be on a plane to Vancouver in three weeks!!
Now for the finished purse. I didn't use a pattern, just started cutting and sewing. It probably would have been a lot easier if I had used an actual purse pattern! But it works. I put a pocket on the back and a divided pocket inside. There is also a zipper under the flap. It is all ready to go on the cruise.

I love the honu of Hawaii, turtles to the rest of you. The pattern that I am just releasing is very meaningful to me. The first one that I made was for a new great nephew that was born in May. There were so many emotions that I had as I created the quilt for Pierce. It symbolizes his brother Yates keeping watch over him. Below is his quilt that is now hanging over his crib.
