One Flower Wednesday, 12 inch Mini Quilt Swap and Northern Lights

Hello!  It's been so long since I posted but I've kept up with visiting all the beautiful hexies/flowers over at One Flower Wednesday hosted by Karen.  My flower garden is growing very slowly and I had trouble keeping the patterned rows in order but after a little ripping out I think my rows are growing nicely.

 
I also participated in a 12" Mini Quilt Swap hosted by Cheryll.  My Mini went to Sharon this month and I was reminded I forgot to add a label...sorry Sharon!
 

This pattern is from  Don't look now!   I just changed things a little to make it a mini.


I received these beautiful pictures in an email and I'd like to share them with you.

Northern Lights Over Teepees

These are spectacular and the teepees are so
pretty in the dark but,
check out that thermometer!
(NORTHERN LIGHTS, YELLOW KNIFE, CANADA )




 
BELOW IS A FIRE RAINBOW - THE RAREST OF ALL NATURALLY OCCURRING ATMOSPHERIC PHENOMENA. THE PICTURE WAS CAPTURED
ON THE
IDAHO, WASHINGTON BORDER. THE EVENT LASTED ABOUT 1 HOUR. CLOUDS HAVE TO BE CIRRUS, AT LEAST 20K FEET IN THE AIR, WITH JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF ICE CRYSTALS AND THE SUN HAS TO HIT
THE CLOUDS AT PRECISELY 58 DEGREES
.
 
 
Enjoy the pictures.....have a great week!

I like your hexie flowers, pretty in pink. Thanks for sharing those amazing photos with us. You're so lucky to be able to actually experience the auroras.

Danette, I love how you used the gray petals in with your stepping stones....it really sets off the pink flowers and makes them pop! Wow..thanks for sharing all those glorious photos.......I don't think I would enjoy that 40 below weather in the tee-pee photos though....lol
