I came to Rainbow as a young primary school teacher in 1970 and ended up building a house here and raising two daughters. I am now retired and enjoying my craft projects which include stitcheries, patchwork, card making and scrapbooking. After a lot of ideas in my head for the bat, I came up with the idea of painting stems and leaves for button flowers. However the button flowers turned into paper flowers and butterflies. I used wool for the grass and hessian tape for the trim. I chose this design because I love flowers and butterflies.
