A Lovely Catchup Along the Way

Today I caught up with blogging friend Illene from Ret Dairy Queen on our way to Wilson's Promitory. Illlene and I have been blogging friends for a long time and only met in person for the first time at LGS in Brisbane. We had a delicious morning tea,  lovely chat and I  got to see in real time Illene's version of my Calendar Bears quilt.
It was so pretty. Illene has used different background fabrics for each block and it looks just a scrappy quilt don't you?
Thanks Illene for your warm hospitality. It was a real treat to spend time with you.
I thought I  would spare you some holiday pics until next post and there are MANY!
I have done only a small amount of stitching......working away still on my Country Alphabet......"R" in the hoop.
A little prelim drawing has been happening too.....these little fairy wrens torment me endlessly. .....never keeping still long enough for a photo. I managed a couple walking around Dubbo zoo....hopefully they will be ok. Meanwhile I am using talented local bird photographer Kev Webbs wonderful piccie (with permission ) as a reference.
Still trying to get all the proportions correct but nice to have one on the go.
 See you next time with a two parter again I think. I am becoming like a touristy crusader.....can't stop taking photos of these gorgeous places and you folks bare the brunt of them all lol!
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
