Warming Up...

I've finished stitching up a few of my own original designs. I can't show anything just yet, but here's a sneaky peak -I also entered a competition over at Lynette Anderson designs, and won a bundle of Lynette's new range of fabrics! I'm enjoying playing around with them and seeing what ideas might come to me. The weather is getting hotter and more humid by the day, which means I'm stuck in the air conditioning and not able to do much outside. A few friends of mine have been very busy in the warmer weather though! Check out the male fig bird sitting in his newly constructed nest. -And there's Curlews (aka bush thick-knees, or bush stone-curlews) nesting in our church grounds!
