July TIF finished

Here is my finished Crazy Quilt block for the July TIF challenge.
I have had a hard time getting a half-way decent photo of it because of the subtle colours---they weren't playing the game properly--the lime green was too bright and the gold butterfly decided it wanted to be orange.
No matter where I tried to take the photo (out side or inside) it just didn't look right---so after taking over thirty photos I gave up.
This is the closest to the real colours that I could get.
I was not too sure about the colours when I saw them on Sharon's blog but I really do like them now that it is finished.
Now to catch up on all the other things that I have to do--this seems to be my favourite words at present--catch up--catch up---catch up.

You really do amazingly lovely blocks Doreen. I am in awe of them but I dont think all that tiny work is for me.

It's beautiful, Doreen. No matter how hard I try I will never "catch up".

You have made these colours look wonderful put together - very 'gentle'.
I think 'catch-up' seems to be on everyones lips at the moment. There are just so many brilliant blogs out there, just not enough time to read and do.

Hi
It is well know in the world of photography that one of the hardest things to photograph are textiles and embroidery especially if there is any metallic or shine in there and there usually is. So you did a good job to represent your piece acurately.
Hazy bright days outside give the best results.
Cheers

This is lovely! You have done a wonderful job with putting it all together. Beautiful embellishing. And I recognise some of the lace you bought when you were in Melbourne (I wish I had of bought more during my visit).
