If I ever finish anything remotely crafty I will be doing a happy skippy dance, however it may be a very long time. I just can't get into the groove, although I did start quilting the Japanese quilt this week. I spent one afternoon, when I had the urge to, I had an - I am going to start it even if it kills me - feeling. I am about half way through and only quilting straight wonky lines!!! I have also been helping the angel/bitchypoo with her art project, so although I have actually been doing some crafty stuff, no photos or updates to show you. For now, you can check out the native birds that feed in the bottle brush ( that is the name of the tree) an Australian native, called that because the flowers look like a bottle brush. This tree is only a few metres/yards from the verandah, and the same height. That is one of the things I love about this house.
The bird is a Rainbow Lorikeet. Looks pretty but has an ear piercing screech, which isn't particularly pleasant in the early hours of the morning.
