Good morning friends. As I was preparing to write this post this morning sitting on my front verandah, enjoying looking out over my mismatched and slightly wild garden a beautiful feathery visitor alighted on the railing in front of me. The Kookaburra was looking for breakfast down in my garden....after a quick eye to eye with me to ensure I was no threat.....

So back to my post.....over the weekend I put the last stitch in the final applique block for Where We Love Is Home quilt.
I had a request last week from eldest Grandson to make a cat loving friend of his a cat themed birthday card....I made his Mum one with this new die and he thought it would be perfect.....so colour choice was made.....
Speaking of things feline.....Queen Athena's portrait that I showed you in an earlier post is finally finished and has been snaffled by youngest Granddaughter for her room.
Gifts from our kind children brightened our week.....as attending live music is not an option for us now....our Son and DIL bought us some merchandise from a show they recently attended of two of our favourites....T shirt for hubby and book for me!
Ok! Time to put the kettle on. Coffee and a Tim Tam for me. I am a little partial to the salty caramel variety these days.......Kooka is still looking out over the garden so I will leave him to it! Hoping you find some simple joy in your day today.

March Slow Stitching
Hello friends. The March instalment for Tag Roulette has rolled around again and I had a very nice relaxing time completing this months tasks. The tag numbers to be highlighted were....
No. 3 - Scrappy.
I went with some pieces of selvages that I loved and saved. I have left them unadorned for now, hoping to add something later.
No. 18 - EPP I fancied a hexie flower with a bit of embellishment and couldn't resist an extra hexie with a busy bee.
No. 33 - Flag I really just replicated the flag on the original tag.
It really is difficult to stop lol! Bring on April!
I am now up to the last applique block for Where We Love Is Home and am planning a picnic under a blossom tree!
Loved this book shared by a friend....have read all Fiona's books and enjoyed each and every one! Thanks Bev xx
I was gifted in a secret Santa years ago a tiny sketchbook. It is not very good quality paper but I hate to see things go to waste and so I am using it to do quick little drawing studies. I do get a little frustrated with the limits of the paper but at least it's got a purpose now. Here's a selection from my efforts so far.
I began a new project to work on there.....a big industrial rusty gate and locks with a little Willy wagtail checking it out.....maybe a bit kitch.....but this scribbler could care less....I love it so far!
I really love nice snail mail, don't you? I received a very sweet card from friend Sue last week.....with some favourite bees featured!
Ok I do try but it looks as if I have once again written a novella lol! Thanks for reading this far.
Take care all. My thoughts go out to all my fellow Aussies who have been devastated by the recent floods in my home State and southern neighbours.....horrible messy clean-ups with so many homes lost. The tragedy for the poor souls in Ukraine is beyond heartbreaking.
Be kind people.
