Portals Quilt

Small as it may be, this quilt still manages to stay in a state of flux. Take a look at what’s already available, and check back periodically for additions.

Kim Bowden-Kerby started Flora and Fauna Weekly Report (My corner of Fiji: observations from the wife of a naturalist) in mid-2013. She identifies the blog's driving force as her attempt to wake up to her immediate environment and not "sleepwalk through the weeds and bugs". American by birth, nurse (retired) by vocation, she lives in Fiji with four generations of family: her husband, award-winning coral reef biologist Austin, mother-in-law, children, and grandchildren.
