Each morning I have been awoken by strange sounds outside my bedroom window and on the roof. The first morning this happened I was quite mystified as I would hear rustling, tinkering around my potted plants and the plop plop of things dropping to the ground. So, what did I do? Peek out the blinds and then creep outside. We have a huge nectarine tree in the back yard and guess what was in it? COCKATOOS!!! Heaps of them!
They were eating all our nectarines, not only on the tree but on top of the back sheds, on the carport and on my neighbours roof as well as my own. The plop plopping was the nectarines dropping onto the path.
Boy, are they a noisy flock! AND they come back each evening for supper!!!!
Regie , my raven, is much more quiet.
I think they may have all flown in with my mojo as I have been happily stitching. I finished Jenny's February stitchery which has been pieced into a little wall hanging and I am currently putting the binding on it. I have done the same with the April stitchery and I have just completed the March one.
I have now machine ( yes, machine) quilted the January table runner but I am having difficulty choosing the binding fabric. Does this purple work or is it too dark? I am trying to use my stash and can't seem to find anything suitable.
I also decided to get back to my hand piecing project that I started quite a while ago, another little Civil War quilt. I finished another block and have started another.
Oh yeah... I got talked into joining this.
