I chose to be a butterfly even though it is quite common because it fits me well.

I come to life when the sun shines. I yearn to fly high and experience life in all its glory. Staying too long anywhere is difficult. A flower garden is my favorite place. Bright colours attract me. I am a butterfly.  My caterpillar days ended when I left the daily work grind and made time for leisure and for me ­ travel, gardening and quilting.  Wearable art is my butterfly cloak.

 ³Just living is not enough said the butterfly, one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower²--Hans Christian Anderson The design was drawn and painted on cotton with Setacolor and Jacquard paints. It was then thread painted and beaded. The wings are organza and Angelina with cotton trim.

I find the art quilt warm, and vibrant with color.  I can almost feel a warm, sunny breeze.  Beautiful!

I too love butterflies!!  Think of the Monarch, migrating from central Mexico to central California and beyond... simply amazing.  Very nice piece!!!  M
