So Dry

You know those stories that go around that make our overseas friends think kangaroos hop down the street in Australia. Well yesterday that happened to me!

A mob of Kangaroos have moved into town onto a spare block I drive past to go to school. One was actually hopping down the street yesterday. Today I stopped and tried to take a photo with my phone.  Not bad for an iPhone. For you Denise, Grethe , Satu and Isabelle

A new project

At the moment I am working on this project in wool.

A quilt for Caleb

A lady put me onto this product . It is truly amazing this rids me of safety pins forever. Had to get Mr B
to help me, even though he said he's not really into sewing. This little quilt is for our Niece's son Caleb.

Today we Remember

Today we remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for us to be free. 

Today I also give thought to all those returned soldiers, their families and their daily struggles and hope their lives are  hopeful and happy. 

I also give thanks and support  to the men and women currently serving.  
( for you Clint , Carla and Corey and all of your fellow soldiers)

Got a Gator and a Dog.

 This little girl just loves her dog and her gator . For those of you who don't know a gator is like a 4 wheel buggy for the farm This one imitates a John Deere .  You can see how much she loves it.

She' got sore eyes at the moment but just look at the face.

Pin cushion with storage.

This weekend I promised myself to sew... Last weekend I taught this Debee McGee pin cushion to my quilt group.    This one is missing it's embroidery.

Made from a kit from "Quilters Angel "in Highfields , Toowoomba

I have added lace to the sides and left the lace off the base in this variation.Love the buttons .


I have been sick of moving this old lamp from one spot to the next ...trying not to throw it out.  

It is useless in design and keeps falling over.  I bought it years ago as a cheapie for our unit.  Shouldn't have.

The shade was new and I really liked it . 

Found this again...I had forgotten I had put this lovely big pot behind the chair in the lounge.... no room...

So after some cutting and chopping at the old stand...I now have this and I think its pretty cool.

More beautiful when the lamp is on.
