One Word Photo challenge: Mint

mint1 (490x640)

This week Jennifer has come up with the colour mint.  I love this colour though I don’t tend to take a lot of photos of it.

Then I realised that I did have some of this colour around.  I am starting to feel better – maybe the warmer weather is helping.  So I have started this quilt for my step daughter and her husband.  It is a joint house warming and Christmas present.  Though I have taken an easy way out – most of the fabric is precut which makes it a lot easier for me, as well as quicker.  Christmas is just around the corner.  It is not my first quilt I have made but this will definitely be my biggest.  The block shown is called the Rose Crown

Lisa really wants a pink  quilt but she also uses mint and teal a lot in her nail art so I hope she will be happy with it.

This is the Fanciful quilt which I picked up from our Spotlight store, with 12 large blocks and patterned stripes around them.

I hope that I can finish it in time – if I do a block a day I will be happy.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Vibrant colours

Good morning from a grey Hastings morning.

This week Cee has given us the challenge to find vibrant photos.  That is easy for me as I love strong colours.  That said my post of pastel roses was popular.

Searching through a memory stick I found this top photo.  It hasn’t been edited.

We have a very strong colour here in New Zealand which does make the colours more vibrant.  I came home from shopping yesterday and noticed how the light was filtering through these new leaves.  It seemed only yesterday there were bare branches and overnight it sprouted new life.

Then there are the last of the tulips.

I just dumped my groceries and grabbed the camera to make the most of the strong light.
