A couple more photos.

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.


  1. Wow, both the trees and the birds are stunning. I think that there are trees called bottle brush here also. I seem to remember seeing something like that in the southwest. How lovely to be able to look outside and see such color!

    Hope you are able to get some photos of the Japanese quilt you are working on.
