#igquiltfest day 20...⠀ ⠀ My favourite ‘in the wild’ picture of my Tilda Lemon Tree Scrappy Trip Around the World quilt 😍⠀ ⠀ The quilt is hanging over a sculpture found on Granite Island, South Australia.⠀ ⠀ When deciding to take this image, I was so conscious of the fact that it was very possible someone would consider my actions offensive to the sculptor. But I hoped that wouldn’t be the case...⠀ ⠀ Taking photos of quilts in public places takes a certain degree of courage! ⠀ ⠀ I shared the funny story behind this picture with my newsletter subscribers a little while ago, because I am happy to own the fact that despite the beautiful illusion of a composed image, the reality just outside the shot can tell a very different story...⠀ ⠀ Between tourists deciding to strike a pose (or possibly 20) in front of the sculpture, and nature doing its thing causing the light to constantly change and the wind to inflict havoc on my set up, there were a great number of dud images 🙈⠀ ⠀ But I try to remind myself it is all worthwhile to get 1 great shot 👍🏻😍😂⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #quiltsofinstagram #quiltstagram #quiltinglife #quiltingfun #ilovequilting #quiltingismytherapy #quiltinginspiration #australianquilter #quiltmaker #aquapaisleystudio #igquiltfestday20
🎉 🎂 H A P P Y B I R T H D A Y H U B B Y 🎂 🎉 I hope you know that I think of you countless times during my day. I love you just as much now as when we first met, and I might even love you more. Even when we are apart, you are always in my thoughts and in my heart. Life is an incredible journey and there is no one I’d rather have by my side during it, than you. Every moment we’ve had together is as irreplaceable as you are. You are a loving father and an incredible husband. Not every woman realizes how precious a good husband is. He’s a lover, protector, and provider. More than that a good husband is always there for you in every way. Know that I will forever appreciate every little thing you do for our family. I hope your birthday has been filled with many moments of love and joy. We love you babe xx @toddcowie @arlojaycowie
Getting back to nature can feel like a distant option when you live in the city. Unless you know where to look. In partnership with @kiaaustralia, we unearthed some of the scenic satellite destinations close to town. Granite Island was on the list.
