Here is Justin sitting out enjoying the beautiful sunny day we are having in Melbourne. He is a Hillbrook bear made from tipped mohair. I love his beret makes him look very dashing and it will keep the sun out of his eyes. Anyone who knows me will know why he came home with me. Blue is my favourite colour. Join other picnickers here. great day for a picnic

A couple of weeks ago DH showed me a bird's nest that was tucked away on the fence behind some lattice plastic. We peered in and there were 3 tiny blue speckled eggs. The next day there were 4. A couple of days ago mum had flown off so I thought I'd look in and check the eggs. Dumb me saw some black fluff and thought "Oh no the eggs have gone mouldy" then I looked a bit closer. There were 3 chicks nestled top to toe in the nest. This is nota very good photo as I'm a bit too short to get above the nest but you can just see the chicks. I think the 4th egg failed to hatch. You can just see the egg under one of the babies.

Here is the Bronwyn Hayes block from My Town all finished.... well as finished as it can be given that I'm not doing the shading( well not yet .. may go back and do it later) I changed a few things from the original,.... the buttons ,menu and signs but that is the beauty of this that it's something individual. I love this block and is probably my favourite. Just need this month's copy of Homespun which is in the shops but as a subscriber I have yet to receive, so I can start on the Town hall ( had a sneak peek at a friend's copy!)
