    Not my creativity @Annie C but I saw this on Instagram today and thought of you. 'Birds of the Kimberley' vase.

    The little finches are just like the ones that live in the ixoras and bouganvillia thickets in the back garden. They come down to bathe in the water bowls dotted around the garden. Flightly little beggars. I have started to digitize and edit the double bar finch for the planned quilt. 

    This afternoon a coucal pheasant emptied the water fountain with his bathing habits. 

    Hope the ankles are not hurting as much. I have a pilow in the bed to raise my feet a little. Seems to offer a bit of softness to the ankles. That or it is mind over matter.

    That's incredible @jena!!! Have you got any experience with filigree patterning? I might have to commission you, if you do that sort of thing.

    That is absolutely GORGEOUS, @Annie C

    How do you have the patience to do all that??  I love the colours & the design .... it will become a family heirloom for that young girl ...... she will pass it on to her daughter or daughter-in-law into the future!   

    Such a thoughtful gift - and keeping the tradition alive altho the club folded ...... EXTRA SPECIAL!  

    Well done YOU!  xxxx

    Dear @Annie C , the patterns on quilts can be mesmerising. This beautiful quilt certainly is.

    So so pretty @Annie C! It will no doubt be treasured forever. Do you start another one immediately or do you have a break?

    In the planning stage for another quilt. Ian's oldest grandson turns 21 in August 2019. However I find quilts for adult males difficult. I don't think they would appreciate flowers! So at this stage a quilt in reds, blacks and grey's with a simple patch design.

    I will think on it for a few weeks. I am now making an heirloom smocked christening gown for the new born baby girl of a lovely young lady in town. I will post a photo when finished.

    @Annie C Please do!

    What about some of the more robust Australian native flowers for a male? They're not as 'pretty' and rather patriotic.
