I finished making the Quilt that my sister Al, and her hubby Scott commissioned (if you don’t count a label, which requires a little more consultation). Sewing on the binding, slowly, over a couple of nights was my tentative return to handwork following the flare up with my carpal tunnel syndrome.
I’m more than happy with how it turned out. I quilted little curlicues around the inside edges of the stars, and lots of larger loops, with the occasional quilted star for the rest of the quilt. I used cream, blue, brown and yellow thread in the corresponding places.
I have not seen any Koalas this week, but we have had plenty of bird life popping in, as well as sightings of our resident possum (who lives in a possum box on our property).
This little character flew into our window on Monday, and spent about 10 minutes stunned on our path outside. We think she/he is a juvenile Eastern Spinebill. Thankfully he/she recovered, and flew off again.
We also spotted a pair of Eastern Rosellas on the same day, but I wasn’t quick enough to snap them both. I love looking birds up, and where possible, listening to recordings of their calls (so I can “connect the dots” between the birds I see and hear). We have a lovely, treed backyard, and I take great delight in all the unusual visitors we get.
Do you keep a camera handy for your unusual visitors?
