A couple of weeks back I did a work shop with Kathy Dougherty
of Material Obsession, it was fun and although Kathy would have preferred a quilt to be made.......... I opted for a pillow. I am so pleased with how it turned out. If you ever have the chance to do a workshop with Kathy grab it with both hands. Kathy is very inspirational and full of ideas. She makes you think about colours and it is amazing how just playing around with different combinations of the same fabrics can really change the look of your project.
My friend Kerry from QLD came to stay and while she was here she had a party to go to.
She was in charge of 2 cakes and some racing teddies.
I took the following pictures from our balcony at Port Elliot the other morning. I went out to take some photos of the black cockatoos that have moved into town to feed. I have noticed them on the edge of town before but at the moment there is obviously something delicious blooming in the town. They are very noisy as they fly around.
My friend Mr Maggie who eats mill worms from my hand.
I am not sure what this bird is.
The Lorikeets are very happy feeding on this New Zealand Christmas bush.
The New England Honey Eaters have an extra patch of yellow on their heads at the moment as these bushes are in flower at the moment and the Honey Eaters have to put their heads deep into the flowers to feed so they end up with pollen on the top of their heads.
