    The "Rosellas in My Gaden" quilt is what I have been working on for a few years, on and off. More off than on!
    The pair used to visit my garden in the Hunter Valley. We have moved to a fabulous birdwatching area, but Eastern Rosellas aren't popping in yet.

    Sooooo pretty! I love Australian birds, from the common budgies and cockatiels to cockatoos and the Neophemas.

    She's a beauty! You'll have to let us see the finished piece. I'm sure it will be breathtaking.

    I have a few more WIP pictures for you. It has been so cold here and as it's our first winter in this area, I have nowhere to work, but today I scrubbed the back verandah and am setting up some studio space later today. It's fine and sunny at last.

    It's not in progress any more!

    I finished it in time for our local Agriculural show, entered and won a blue ribbon.

    Quite chuffed with that!
