Butterfly in Black & White

Butterfly in Black & White
I made this butterfly using the large butterfly pattern in my Butterflies for Amy pattern.  This was a lot of fun to make and it looks so different from those in the pattern.  Using differnet colors in the fabrics really makes a big difference in how something looks.  Some of the wing parts were put together so that the black and fabrics would show up more.

June snowfall on Mauna Kea

This is what Mauna Kea looked like yesterday morning after there was a June snowfall of 6 to 12".   This photo came from the West Hawaii Today paper.  There was a thunderstorm that went through and it dumped hail and snow.  What a sight for June in Hawaii!!  It seems the weather is strange all over.
