Butterflies and Fabric

The selvage information on the beautiful butterfly fabric shown above says " Creature comforts butterflies" Isn't it beautiful! I especially like the swallowtail butterflies illustrated on it.
Shown above is a butterfly pillowcase I made for my little granddaughter. I hope she likes butterflies!
Above , a swallowtail butterfly feeds upon our lilac blossoms, just outside my window.

Mug Rug

Its bigger than a coaster, but smaller than a place mat. Its a mug rug, similiar to a small quilt.
Its my husband birthday today so I made him this mug rug this morning. As a result of an interest in nature I buy fabric with nature themes as often as I can. These scraps which I used in the mug rug.really fit the purpose well.
